Coleman Biospace 300 Tent

Q. Hi all! I've just purchased a Biospace 300. It looks OK but there are a few things im not sure of as the instructions sewn into the bag are weak. Can anyone who's got one or any of the others in the range HELP??

What are the straps for on the inside on the living area near the floor?? (flouresent green hoops!!)

And the piece of cord that travels the length of the inner sleeping area??

There are also some bright green hoops dotted around the tent about half way up that don't make any sense?

Help appreciated.

A. I've got a Biospace 400, lovely tent. The straps on the floor are to pull on to get the poles in. The cord that travels the inner sleeping area is just for you to hang stuff on, and the bright green hoops dotted around are for the guy ropes.

A. Wild Camping and The Law in England, Scotland and Wales.

Tents cannot be pitched just anywhere because every piece of Britain is owned by some individual or some organisation and according to the strict letter of the law permission must be obtained prior to pitching tent and camping.

In practice however, this is often impractical and wild camping is usually tolerated in the more remote areas - typically, more than half a day's walk from an official campsite or other accommodation providing you:

In Scotland, the current access legislation (which came into effect in early 2005) is explicit about your right to wild camp on hill land. However, there are exceptions. Since March 2011 you are not permitted to wild camp between Dryman and Rowardennan on the shore of Loch Lomond. See Loch Lomond Wild Camping Ban for more information.

There appears to be an exception to this with respect to camping in Dartmoor National Park where the right to wild camping is actually enshrined in the National Parks & Access to the Countryside Act, 1949 amendment Dartmoor Commons Act, 1985 - see Wild Camping in the UK for more details.

For the definitive answer with respect to wild camping in Scotland see the answer supplied by the Scottish Natural Heritage
