Seeking Advice and Recommendations for Wild Camping


Just wanted to find out if there are any recommendations for wild camping near Loch's? and also since we are going as two families with one family being total 4 people and we are also bringing our dog too?

Also are there any Lochs' to which it could be possible to drive up to? and what are rules and regulations towards fishing?

As for then we are going, well we're thinking of going in a couple of weeks.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks,

    Hi @Leon

    Thank you for your message regarding a camping trip. This is something of a grey area at the moment. Things are only just opening up in Scotland at the moment, with some places only beginning to reopen from July 15th. Many beauty spots have been closed off, even for locals  and are only now beginning to open themselves up. Another thing you have to take into consideration is that many rural areas are also on working farms requiring you to maybe touch gates and fences, which at this time cant be encouraged, not only to keep you safe but also the farmers who have themselves and their business to protect. Plus if you have a dog you will have to be aware of any livestock in nearby fields.

    Where is it you are coming from and where about in Scotland are you looking to travel to? 

    At the moment our Government advice is to stay local unless your journey is absolutely necessary.

    Please get back in touch with us if you require any more information.

    Kind Regards
