Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park Authority has won a legal appeal against an estate within the National Park.
The park took legal action against the estate in 2013 following complaints from members of the public that access to an area between Ben Venue and Loch Ard was being blocked by locked high gates and prohibitive signage and after repeated attempts by us to resolve the issue with the owners directly.
Earlier this week the decision found in favour of the Park Authority’s argument that the owners of Drumlean Estate within the National Park were blocking members of the public from enjoying access rights granted by the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003. The owners will now need to take steps to comply with an enforcement notice issued by the Park Authority in 2013.
