Loch beaches
« on: October 10, 2017, 11:25:06 PM »
Hi everyone, I’m very new to all this and was wondering what are the laws about detecting on Beaches at Lochs?

Cheers,

Tony.

Hi Budge1, many thanks for the link. It mentions coastal more than anything, but after reading through the third time I’m pretty sure that they are much the same.

No problems Tony, sorry but don't know about lochs but would think you would need permission from landowners.

 If we are talking of sea lochs that are tidal, I would think you could detect under crown commission , just as you can shoot under this law, below the high water mark.  For inland lochs permission would be required from the landowner who's land runs to the loch edge, or the owner of the loch, if the loch produced beach as the water level fell.

Hi TonyJ, I'd agree that you'd definitely have to speak to the land owner. Explain to them how much rubbish you'd be removing, you're doing them a favour in a way. Good luck🙂

Cheers everyone, all the comments makes sense, it has been an idea I have had for a while, as like beaches at the sea, people do go to them for a swim, pick nicks  and fishing, so you never know!

Cheers,

Tony.

If you mean freshwater lochs, then that is private land and you would have to ask the land owner for permission. However, if you promise to remove any and all rubbish, old tangles of fishing line, beer cans, etc. in return for permission to detect there, then the land owner may very well appreciate your efforts and be happy to have you there. Good luck.

I wondered this myself, and where i was looking at going is forestry commission land. From what i have heard the forestry commission dont like detectorists. Booo!
