Wind that would skin you —

21 Apr

Loki had a splash in Loch Earn today .. there was no chance of me joining him as there was a wind from the east that would have skinned me 😱

It takes a strong stomach to go down on the shore after the Easter ‘wild’ campers and day-trippers have left there shit and empties everywhere. The worst ones smash there empties into the fires when they are done – go figure 🥺

As an odd bunch of mainly solo bikers we used to call in there on a Sunday thirty years ago and meet like-minded motor-cyclists from a’airts by the fire. We had a five gallon drum hidden away and foraged for fallen branches to burn from the nearby wood.

Then Ranger posts were created and they saw fit to ban us from collecting our measly few bits of timber as it was supposedly home to a wide variety of invertebrates. We could understand that and some of the regular participants started to bring offcuts of wood from home.

Since Loch Earn was put under the banner of Loch Lomond National Park things have gone down hill.

There appear to be more Rangers than there were but they have lost control of the campers who even go as far as chopping down trees for their camp fires.

What happened to the ‘caring for the wild’ agenda 😡
