    WE walked the dogs there a few weeks ago, stopped in the van in the car park. There were 3 motorhomes parked on the road. They, I presume, had stayed the night there because NT has stopped overnight parking in the car park & the pull-in further up the hill. In previous years (although out of season) there have been vans in the car parks but none on the road. The NT could raise some good meney here by charging a few quid to overnight. We would be happy to pay.

    Mind you the NT has just by chance opened their own camp site up the road, I believe.

    Here we go again.
    So they are concerned about overnight parking, why overnight when things are quiet, and I am sure plenty of spaces are available. Yet again we are isolated and deemed the culprits of all that is wrong here. They talk about lack of facilities and infrastructure, well take some of our 9.7 billion a year and improve these facilities. This is all about attitudes towards us based on ignorance by a small but vocal minority, who obviously lead dull boring lives.
    If we all agreed there would be no discussion, and it would be a dull boring world.

    Exactly, a problem created by lack of foresight.
    All they did was move the vans elsewhere creating the problem.
    Three vans, well that must have created havoc and serious parking issues

    I get a bit tired of reading things like this. I don't understand why I should be treated this way just because I want to sleep in my bus sometimes. Why am I classed as some sort of second class citizen because I want to travel this land & explore the country in which I was born? What gives these people the right to feel they should protect the coast, or any other area, from myself or anyone else? These places are there for everyone surely. If I was a foreign citizen, or of Romany descent I would have more rights than I seem to have as a "free" citizen. What the he'll is wrong with this country? Why do our elected leaders seem to think we put them in power so they could suppress us while bleeding us dry at the same time? We aren't criminals surely, what do we do wrong that rubs people up the wrong way?....

    Hi gregg, I could not agree more, your excellent post summed how I feel perfectly.
    I am lucky I live in Scotland a land were there are are more beautiful spots to stop than we could ever fill.
    I prefer more remote tranquil spots than this, quite frankly I don’t ever fancy parking up in places like this.
    But I know that many on here do like to visit such places. I actually prefer using campsites when I visit such locations. But that is how I feel, not how others do. You are spot on we are being treated like second class citizens. Why is this ?. Well put simply no one out there speaks up for us. Look at who run the show for us.
    Organisations that are more interested in flogging us pitches, insurance, or many other things. The very organisations that should be supporting us actually despise us as people who are unwilling to put money in their pockets. Then we have locals who exaggerate our presence, whilst resisting measures to elevate issues that they have brought up themselves. An example of this would be Brodick on Arran were after myself and others convinced the coop to allow overnight parking for up to 6 Motorhomes, a small minority complained, now we have overnight parking signs there now.

    Sadly I can see no end to this, it’s looking like we will be reduced to parking in remote isolated locations, or paying 30 a night to be parked up next dozens of others with poor outlook, and that’s if you book months in advance.

    You say NT has possibly just opened a campsite up the road,ok enough said!So restrictions placed on parking on the roads and car parks so they are trying to force Motorhomes/campervans into this then to get a lovely 30 a night upwards.Not gonna happen as I posted before the tourism will go elsewhere

    It's insane. In an area of the country where much of the local economy is derived from tourism, the authorities see an increase in visitor numbers as a problem that has to be addressed.

    They will be crying poverty when they make the place so unfriendly to tourists that everyone sods off abroad instead.

    Don't bite the hand that feeds
