Queen’s Balmoral Estate bosses slam campers for abandoning tents & litter at the beauty spot

BOSSES at the Balmoral Estate have blasted campers for abandoning tents and litter at the beauty spot.

Tents, rucksacks and camping equipment were among the rubbish left near Loch Muick.

Taking to Twitter, Balmoral Castle slammed the mess left behind by brazen litter louts.

And they thanked a kind-hearted camper from Edinburgh who helped tidy up the mess.

They wrote: “Three abandoned tents at Loch Muick today!

“Thanks very much to George from Edinburgh, who was camping responsibly nearby, for helping to tidy up the mess.”

The tweet caused outrage on social media, as punters slammed the campers’ behaviour as “disgusting”.

One wrote: “Well done for tidying it up but I really cannot understand what goes through them minds of people who camp in such a wonderful location and then ruin it by leaving a mess.”

While another said: “Sickening though isn’t it? The few spoil it and then you get someone like George who ends up tidying up their mess. So unfair and no need for it but thank goodness for people like him.”

And one Twitter user added: “oh dear, disgusting.”

We previously told how the Queen took her beloved dogs for a walk last weekend as she was spotted for the first time since going to Balmoral for her staycation.

Her Majesty, 94, headed out for the brisk walk on Saturday with Sophie Wessex, Edward and their children, Lady Windsor, 16, and James, Viscount Severn, 12.

The Sun also told how the Queen skipped her usual church visit at Balmoral — but was offered the chance to attend a live-streamed service.

Virus concerns and worries over crowds mean Her Maj, 94, will not visit Crathie Kirk during her summer stay at the estate.
