Police invite wild camping louts to Pitlochry station to collect jettisoned ‘pungent green vegetation’

Police officers have urged wild campers who left litter and camping equipment strewn along the shore of a Highland Perthshire loch to visit them to collect cannabis they left behind.

Visitors to the loch left a tent, three camping chairs, a cool-box, sleeping bag and tarpaulin tied up over their makeshift campsite.

The party had also left behind a significant amount of litter and a quantity of what is understood to be the class C drug.

Officers patrolling the area on Saturday stumbled upon the mess.

Police jokingly urged the culprits to pay them a visit to collect their goods.

A spokesperson for the force said: “Officers patrolling Loch Rannoch on Saturday came across this campsite which appeared to have been abandoned in a hurry.

“If the former residents would like to reclaim the pungent bag of green vegetation they left behind, then pop into Pitlochry police office for a wee chat.”

Last week, police revealed they would be increasing their patrols at Highland Perthshire lochs following a spate of wild camping incidents.

Tourists are being urged not to holiday in the area until later phases lifting restrictions on lockdown.
