Found  a tent in a lay-by at Traigh.

In case you didn’t know where you were it’s in between Arisaig and Mallaig.

A few months back we came across  a huge tent abandoned on the beach at Arisaig with loads of stuff still inside. My guess it was a large group who all chipped in a few quid bought a cheap tent got pissed woke up under the weather and went home without the hassle of packing. 

Nb . I passed the picnic area at  Duck Bay on Loch Lomond today, I saw a double duvet dumped beside the litter bin !

This tents owner, if it’s the couple I saw, hadn’t made a mess where they camped.

But there have been a few tents on the beach this weekend possibly due to full sites. Some of them have been very tidy and bagged their rubbish but left it by the road for someone else to shift. Toilet roll in the dunes and all that....

These 'freebie' tents are usually cheap single skin vapour traps. 

IF it's a good one all the better, and  if there are no claims to ownership at least you tried, and maybe now you have a decent tent as a spare . 

Either way it's now no longer making a mess, so good for you that you took it away.
