Beauty spots across the UK littered with selfish campers


Staycationers have been beaten up for littering the UK's beauty spots with rangers at the Queen's Balmoral property shaming wild campers for abandoning tents as the Lake District was buried under hills of "heartbreaking" rubbish.

The property rangers posted a picture of a row of abandoned tents that were left on Saturday.

There is a catalog of other similar incidents in the Scottish countryside in the summer.

Meanwhile, volunteers cleaning up leftover litter in the Lake District have called the mountains of rubbish "heartbreaking" as visitors flock to the area.

The rangers at the Queen's private Scottish estate posted a picture of three abandoned tents at Loch Muick on top of Twitter and thanked a nearby camper named George of Edinburgh for helping clean up the trash

Friends of the Lake District, a charity, shared a picture above showing leftover camping gear, groceries, and nitrous oxide cans left at the beauty site.

Balmoral's rangers wrote on Twitter: “Today three abandoned tents at Loch Muick! Many thanks to George from Edinburgh who responsibly camped nearby to clean up the mess. & # 39;

Social media users responded to the post with a letter: “The people who left this must have money to burn !! I hope you can auction them off and use the money to cover cleaning costs! & # 39;

Many praised the man who helped clean up the mess, saying, “Well done George, it's a shame not everyone likes him. Would you leave houses there in this mess to keep Scotland clean? & # 39;

“Give this man a knighthood,” said another as Willie Munro wrote, “Well done to clean it up, but I really can't understand what gets through the minds of people who camp in such a wonderful place then ruin them by making a mess. & # 39;

It comes when the Friends of the Lake District, a charity, shared a picture showing leftover camping gear, groceries, and nitrous oxide cans that were left at the beauty site.

Engagement Officer Ruth Kirk told the BBC: “It just breaks my heart. It makes me cry

“It has been recreated throughout the Lake District, particularly on the shores of the lake.

“It's understandable that people want to spend time here, but it created quite a problem with the amount of trash left behind.

Engagement Officer Ruth Kirk said the junk "breaks her heart" and "makes her cry", adding, "It's been repeated across the Lake District". Most of the rubbish is said to have been left on the lakeshore

Recently, Balmoral Estate warned of the growing problem and urged people to camp responsibly and not leave a trace.

Numerous followers on social media were furious over a mess that described the scene as "devilish" and "completely clueless".

One wrote: "Unfortunately everything is so cheap and disposable these days that once a year campers / festival goers don't think about leaving it to someone else to clean it up and throw it away."

Another added: & # 39; Seriously ??? All that stuff has been thrown away – people never stop surprising me. & # 39;

The Mountain Bothies Association previously announced that two key shelters on the property had been closed – at least one due to "irresponsible" behavior.

It came just days after Balmoral went wild to the bathroom on the 50,000 acre property.

Balmoral staff used social media to post pictures of toilet wipes that were even dumped next to monuments and warned of "increasing amounts of human waste on the property".

For a period of time, traffic will be managed at two Deeside locations to protect public safety and ensure that two of the Cairngorms National Park's best-known beauty areas are not damaged by off-road parking.

Access to Loch Muick will be restricted at the entrances to Glen Muick once the car park is full. The barriers are occupied and cars may only be admitted if there is capacity in the parking lot.

It is critical that people have an alternative plan when they cannot access Glen Muick, the parks authority warned.

The National Trust for Scotland's Linn of Dee – once the Quoich and Linn of Dee car parks are full – will ask people to park in a new overflow car park just before Linn of Dee. When this also gets crowded people will be asked to find an alternative place to enjoy a walk.

Social media users responded to Balmoral's rangers and praised a nearby camper for cleaning up. One wrote: "Give this man a knighthood" and another said the throwing men must have "money to burn".

The formal restrictions apply for 21 days. The "No Entry" restrictions do not apply to pedal bikes, emergency vehicles, or vehicles that only require access to properties.

“The Cairngorms National Park is 4,500 square kilometers and there are many alternatives that people should consider. There are 666 miles of core trails around the park and quieter places for people to enjoy, ”the park authority said.

Balmoral has also attacked litter louts who have plagued the property over the years – and in 2016 a group left such a pile of rubbish in a bothy that it took three trips from Her Majesty's Land Rover to clean up the mess.

Shopping carts were among the remaining items.

It is followed by the Queen, 94, and Prince Philip, 99, who, after self-isolating at Windsor Castle for the past four months, are moving to Balmoral for their annual summer vacation.

You've created a new "bubble" of employees, although visitors still can't get too close.
