People are being warned to clean up after their litter at campsites at one of Scotland's most iconic beauty spots.

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park shared on social media a couple of images of a campsite that had been left abandoned.

In the pictures cardboard, full bottles of fizzy drinks, wood and plastic can be seen strewn across the area.

In a statement online they said: "There are stunning places to camp here in the National Park - please leave them that way.

"Abandoned campsites like these are treated as flytipping and can result in a £200 Fixed Penalty Notice or a fine of up to £30,000."



The National Park attracts more than four million visitors every year and has some of Scotland's busiest major roads passing through it.

In 2016, the Park Authority banned wild camping in a bid to restrict overnight visitors to designated campsites. The scheme was being brought in amid concerns over the impact unrestricted camping, including the amount of rubbish which had been strewn around the Loch.

Then in 2017 camping byelaws were introduced and are in force across each camping management zone between March 1 and September 30 every year.

A violation of any of the byelaws could result in a report being sent to the procurator fiscal - and a fine of up to £500.
