Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park was created in July 2002 under the National Parks (Scotland) Act 2000 to safeguard an area of outstanding and diverse landscapes, habitats and communities, parts of which were coming under severe visitor and recreational pressures.
The Act sets out four National Park aims:
- To conserve and enhance the natural and cultural heritage,
- To promote the sustainable use of the natural resources of the area,
- To promote understanding and enjoyment (including enjoyment in the form of recreation) of the special qualities of the area by the public,
- And to promote sustainable social and economic development of the communities of the area.
The Loch Lomond and
The Trossachs National Park Authority, is a non-departmental public body
established in terms of and acting under the National Parks (Scotland) Act
2000 and The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Designation,
Transitional and Consequential Provisions (Scotland) Order 2002
