NOP sign on this popular picnic and wild camping spot only targets Motorhomes and allows tents. What is more likely to deter me in future is the access to it which I grounded on heavily despite being only lightly loaded and taking it slowly. so beware!

nearby Tibbie shiels site is to be avoided as expensive for what is effectively wildcamping on a pub carpark, facilities are poor and site rules wierd...

Hi Runnach. There are a LOT more yellow NOP signs on the Scots mainland compared to our last visit 5 years ago. Perhaps we'll spend our pensions elsewhere (England,Wales,France,Spain,Italy etc.etc.).

Hi, and there have been a few posts on here regarding NOP signs, however, I believe many are not enforceable, a search here will confirm this.

Can't say I blame you stating you will perhaps spend your 's elsewhere, it does take the edge of trips when all you view is NOP signs, I tend just to ignore them, as I'm a stakeholder, I contribute to running the system, as you do too!

In what way might they not be enforceable?

This thread might be of some help

If you do a search of the site for "No Overnight Parking" or "TROs" you'll find a wealth of info on the subject.

Full marks Runnach for your ongoing experiments with the buoyancy values of NOP signs in deep water - purely in the name of science of course.

I've actually dived this exact spot many years ago, only once, as it was bl@@dy freezing and visability less than six inches, making me cold thinking about it!!

No risk of anyone finding it then if these floods just happened to wash it away ?????

Saint Mary's can easily freeze over in severe winter weather, I know of one guy (kitted up) drove a clapped out mini over the ice till it gave, then fin back to shore. I know, tis was a dodgy act, but hey ho, at around 40 metre deep, who the hell is going to find it :danger:

Ps, where are the floods happening??
