Highland Air(es)

Perhaps something is going to be done about the "dirty camping" in the Highlands.  Seems the plans don't quite align with user needs though, as they are consulting with a organisation of site owners rather than The Caravan Club and/or the Camping and Caravan Club!

It's about time that a stop is put to those Dirty Campers fouling beauty spots in Scotland. For a number of years Motorhomers and to a lesser extent Caravanners have been dumping their foul waste wherever they stop for the night, being too mean to use recognised camping sites . It is a health hazard and a public nuisance. Having authorised Aires with grey and black waste disposal and a water tap will go a long way to stop Dirty Camping. The photograph in the OP just shows how much of a blight those people create.

I agree that an Aire system might be very helpful. They work well in Europe so why not here?

It might be a way to keep M/Hs from blocking pitches on CLs for those who want to spend a few days in an area and not just use them for an overnighstop. However it may also encourage even more to tour up there and add to the already congested roads in the Spring and Summer.

I can't see it happening due to the investment needed by local councils for waste, water, hook-up etc. allso there is a law of six metres apart I understand

It will cost less than what the councils are having to pay workers to scrape up excrement from the countryside.

As I understand, the six meter (twenty foot) seperation applies to formal touring campsites. By observation, static caravans are often placed far closer, and there seems no restriction is placed on sites operating under an exemption certificate. Hence my always parking the tow vehicle along the off-side of the caravan, and the picnic bench in front of the awning on the near side in those places.

I don't think that is actually a law, the 6 m gap, but a strong recommendation from the fire service.
