We are mature and responsible. We travel in a small campervan and prefer to camp overnight in quiet secluded places. Routinely, we are faced with signs saying "No overnight Parking". In Eyemouth, there is even a threat of a £60 fine for cooking in our van.
We have no desire to break the law, but wonder: What is the legal justification for these restrictions?
What is Visit Scotland's view on this?
Throughout Europe there are dedicated 'Aires' for campervans. These are much appreciated and contribute significantly to the local economy as well as encouraging travellers to feel welcome. Perhaps we should learn form our European neighbours.
