It is. But people who enjoy making trouble will soon spot that wild camping:

1. Doesn't involve arriving by motorised transport
2. Is lightweight (so should involve you carrying all your kit at once not making multiple trips to a car)
3. Is not in the curtilage of any building.
4. Is in small groups (although IIRC there weren't dozens of tents)

I have a gut feel (but haven't looked it up) that you only need a license to use for more than X nights p.a. but I suspect Tony is dealing with a gripe and they will find every reason to complain (even without justification) which is just going to make his business interests harder for no personal gain.

It would be a shame if one individual was able to "win" by disrupting the event. It would be somewhat ironic if a less organised gathering were to replace it - which would probably be less safe, and risk more disruption to locals without the considered coordination.

Agreed.[/QUOTE]



That scenario also occurred to me, loads of folk turn up mob handed, no organisation or logistics in place = chaos. Job done

what i think is really sad is an individual complaing to the authorities of an unsafe harbour unsubstantiated not thinking of threatening the lives of the islanders, i can think of one thing the ferry being withdrawn as a precaution which would be devastating to all. live & let live i say, it's a wonderful place to live a great place to visit and hopefully ERR will continue.

Sadly Jeff, that's the way we seem to be going. The majority are now governed by the "rights" & feelings of the minorities. SomeONE will have previously been "offended" or felt discriminated against or had his/her Human Rights impinged upon, therefore everyone has to suffer.
I'll get me coat

well last i heard we were a democracy governed by the majority and you can cry all you want no cigar IMO but then i am an old git i can't stand selfishness what would all the properties be worth without a ferry service for one through an individual that gets off on making others lives a misery.
for the last 4 years at ERR there's a person who has provoked me over my dog asking me to pick his poop up whilst i am holding a bag full it this year he said you haven't used your boat much is it worth coming up, i happen to have a tongue like a knife when needed and they were dispatched swiftly and for their information i had done 150 miles in it and maybe they should police the village on a more regular basis to keep up with my comings and goings with a few expletives from me ending in off, i went on my way and spent the rest of my stay in the knowledge that i had pi$$ed on their fire. won't have my holiday spoilt by this type of behavior have not got a coat
