Plenty for the camper-van folk to watch tonight - image

Suddenly a little bit of red appeared in the west out of the foreboding sky and out in the east towards Forres a passing storm that had skirted Nairn was still delivering flashes of lightening. Good to see the campervans down at the harbour again tonight - there seem to have been quite a few of them this summer and no doubt some of them will be spending money in the town if they can drag themselves away from the view.

Exactly and meanwhile the councillors are trying to ban campers\MHs and so forth. Most folk with a camper\MH take away their rubbish and are no bother to the town folk and pay for meals and so forth. Additionally any ‘no overnight parking’ signs are not enforceable and are ONLY advisory unless specific byelaws are in place AND the signs are official – not yellow backgrounds with black lettering and there are few places in Scotland with lawful\enforceable 'No overnight parking' signs.

Further, if the councillors decide to charge for the right to park overnight, this would only be advisable and not enforceable, it’s a can of worms and if tourists have been travelling for hours then as the Highway code advises pull over and take a nap, the council would be effectively taking away a safety net for those whom are tired and require to stop for rest. The west coast crofters on Harris use a similar idea but again it’s only advisory to add a fiver. If for whatever reason it did become some sort of byelaw to pay, then the council also has to provide additional facilities such as waste disposable points, bins that are emptied every other day or so, fresh clean water and so forth.
