CAMPERS the length and breadth of Britain are now able to flock to the banks of Loch Lomond after lockdown limits were lifted ­– and there is a new regime in place at one of the area’s most popular sites.

After almost 50 years, operation of the campsite at Luss has passed from the Camping and Caravanning Club back to the land’s owner, Luss Estates.

The planned opening in March was cancelled because of the coronavirus outbreak, but the site is now open in line with Scottish Government guidance to the tourism industry.

Luss Estates says measures have been put in place to ensure the site is safe to visit.

Patrick Colquhoun, Luss Estates’ assistant chief executive, said: “Having taken back the management of the site at the end of our lease with the Camping and Caravanning Club, we undertook an extensive refurbishment, update and landscaping project.

“We are delighted to now be open.”

The National Park Authority gave approval in February to an application by Luss Estates for year-round opening at the site, which had previously been available to visitors between March and October only.

Luss Estates says the site will be open for 11 months of the year, and will be closed in February.

A report by a park official on the application stated: “Conditions are required to ensure the site is used for short term holidays, that the appearance of the staff accommodation caravans is appropriate to the setting, and to ensure the long term management and maintenance of the site as a whole.”
