Two men are being reported to prosecutors by police after they were allegedly caught camping without a permit in Perthshire.
Police say the men, aged 38 and 45, were found camping near St Fillans, on the eastern shore of Loch Earn, which is part of a Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park camping management zone.
Officers were called to the scene on Saturday morning.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “On the morning of Saturday May 13, police attended the camping management zone off the A85 on the north shore of Loch Earn.
“Two men, aged 38 and 45, will be reported to the procurator fiscal for camping without a permit.”
What are the camping laws?
Between March and September, camping management zones are set up in the national park to help conserve certain areas.
Camping in these areas is permitted – however, only with a permit, which can be bought for £4 per tent, per night.
Management zones stretch across many areas of the park – including around Loch Earn and in parklands near Aberfoyle.
Some zones only accept tents but others allow motorhomes and caravans.
Refusal to comply with the bylaw can result in a £500 fine and a report to the procurator fiscal.
These zones cover less than 4% of the national park, and are not in place between October and February.
