SIB Launch Loch Lomond

Sorry folks, I know this question has been asked and answered but I can't find it.

If you don't need to use Duncan Mills Slip to Launch (ie with a SIB) is it ok to launch anywhere else on the loch providing the SIB's registered and where else could you launch.
Presumably you wouldn't have to report to Nat. Park that you were "on the Loch"

I don't believe there is any obligation to report your presence on the loch to the NPA. (You must be registered and display numbers - but you don't need to tell them each day).

As a member of the public just turning up with a powered craft I think your only options are Duncan Mills Slip, Millarrochy Slip (but soon to close), Ardlui Marina, Balmaha Boatyard, The Marina/Boatyard launching into the river Leven. There is also (AFAIK its still open) a slip into the river on the East bank. The latter may be the only free facility.

Some of the campsites have facilities for resident use only.

If you flatpack the boat and inflate in "on the beach" there will be various other places that are possible to get to.
