Proposals to ban so-called casual camping around parts of Loch Lomond look set to get the go-ahead.
More then 65 per cent of people responding a public consultation were in favour of the move.
The ban looks set to be rubber-stamped by the Lomond & Trossachs National Park, amid fears similar bans could be proposed for other lochs.
Officials claim the move will held stamp out anti-social behaviour and vandalism around the loch shores.
Pike anglers responding to the consulttion said they were being restricted because of the actions of a minority which the police and national park authorities are already equipped with powers to deal with.
