CONCERNS have been raised over people causing chaos at a local beauty spot.

Visitors have been flocking to Luss recently to soak up the sun during the spell of hot weather.

However, it is reported that not everyone has been respectful of the local community.

Residents say people have been having street races in their cars, using jetskis irresponsibly, littering, urinating in the streets, and parking inconsiderately.

Members of the school community added that they suspect trespassers have been on school grounds at night.

These incidents have prompted pupils at Luss Primary to discuss the challenges of anti-social behaviour and disorder as well as look at possible solutions.

Youngsters wrote to Jackie Baillie, Dumbarton’s MSP, to voice their concerns.

On a visit to the school, one child described street racing and a “loud bang” before the cars sped off.

Other children said they had seen damage caused by fire, discarded vapes, and alcohol containers along with countless disposable barbecues.

Pupils are being proactive in trying to find solutions to these problems but were sadly unable to take part in a recent litter pick because of the volume of broken glass in the village.

Following a visit to the school Jackie Baillie attended the Luss Summit which brings together a range of agencies with the intention of making sure the Loch Lomond village remains a safe place for visitors.

Ms Baillie said: “It was concerning to hear about the problems associated with inconsiderate visitors flaring up again as it is only the start of the summer.

“Young people in Luss shouldn’t have to witness people urinating in their village and the volume of rubbish which has been left recently.

“It was however heartening to hear of the discussions which the forward-thinking pupils at Luss are having to raise awareness and come up with solutions. Our future is in safe hands with them.

“However, they shouldn’t have to put up with the problems which they do. All of the groups who have a responsibility for the area, whether it be Argyll and Bute Council, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority, Police Scotland, or Luss Estates, have a duty to work together and do more to improve the village for everyone.”
