There used to be restrictions on the Car Park. However, I don't think they were enforced as there was an old caravan and a few boats on the Car Park which looked like they had been there a long time. This was about 3 years ago.

We asked in the Chip shop if it was OK to overnight. The staff and customers said it would be fine and not to bother about the restrictions on the notice board. I intended staying anyway as there was a Force 10 Gale forecast, it was early March (very quiet time of year) and the Sleet was horizontal. :D It got so bad that I had to turn the back of the van into the gale as we were getting seasick with the rocking motion. :D Two days later (in the same area), I only needed a T-shirt as it was warm and sunny. :D

As for the other spot, some of the local campsite owners had kicked up at the wildcamping and complained to the Council. It would probably would be no bother off season and it is handy for fresh water.
