Ettrick Bay - Proposed Campsite

Ettrick Bay - Proposed Campsite

On 19 January 2023 Mount Stuart Trust will host two consultation events on new proposals to site a campsite at Ettrick Bay.

The consultation events form part of Mount Stuart Trust’s commitment to engage meaningfully with members of the local community on its land use activities across the Island.

The drop-in sessions will take place at the Ettrick Bay Café between 1pm and 3pm and at The Bank of Ideas in Rothesay between 4pm and 6pm. Members of the community will have an opportunity to view drawings of the proposed site and raise any questions with the Mount Stuart Trust team.

Fiona Hardie, Community Liaison Officer, Mount Stuart Trust said: “We are aware that concerns have been raised about visitors parking vehicles on the verges and footpaths at Ettrick Bay and leaving rubbish behind when they leave. The proposals will explore an opportunity to create a dedicated space for campervans and caravans to avoid this happening in the future.

“The next step in the process is for us to understand the thoughts and opinions of those who live and work on the Island and we would encourage as many people as possible to attend.”

Drawings of the proposed site can be viewed at the below links and any feedback provided by filling out this form and returning it to
