    After being made aware by one of the Galloway Forrest wardens that there is to be no more wildcamping by motorised vehicles, here is the email I received back from Keith Muir, head of visitor services at Galloway Forrest.

    So presumably he is saying that even as a responsible motorhomer we still can't overnight?
    Together with the post on the pspo thingy in Rye it's all getting very depressing...

    Parked on the Raider Road loads of times and had no problems with the rangers. The Otter Pool does get busy and used by the Buckfast Brigade.

    I wonder who is going to enforce it? they're gunna have to come and check either very late at night or early in the morning otherwise you could say you have just arrived. Hopefully its just going to give them another option to use to move unwanted vehicles on, and anybody parked responsibly will be left alone.
    We tend to use the 7 stanes mountain biking car parks, and the guy who is in charge of the 7 stanes regularly comes round and has a chat, never mentions anything about whether we can or cannot stay over, as long as we pay the £3 he doesn't seem to care.

    Maybe that question should be put to Mr Muir.

    All people who disrespect the countryside, or anywhere else, should have their vehicle confiscated and be given a huge fine, should you even be allowed to have a driving licence if you don't understand do not leave litter, no fires, leave no trace etc.

    That is a real blow, we have stayed overnight a few times on the Raiders Road. It was very convenient and reassuring to know we had somewhere to stop when in this area. We have never seen any trouble either but then we travel out of main season on the whole.

    Could it have anything to do with the fact there are plans to build luxury lodges in the forest perhaps?
