In order to protect some of our most cherished lochshores, byelaws covering camping and firelighting are in place in certain areas from March to September.
During this time, you need a permit to camp or (in some locations) to stay overnight in your motorhome in these Camping Management Zones. Permits can be purchased online using the search bar to the right.
Camping Management Zones include a number of defined camping “permit areas” within which a number of permits are allocated. A camping permit allows you to camp anywhere within your chosen permit area – you are not allocated a specific space. Permit areas provide the opportunity to have a ‘wild camping’ experience in popular parts of the National Park and have no formal facilities, so please make sure you come prepared.
Explore our permit areas using the map below.

Organised groups such as Duke of Edinburgh, Scouts, and youth organisations, who wish to camp in a Camping Management Zone can apply online for permission. There is no charge for these types of groups to camp in a Camping Management Zone.
