Milton of Fonab Campsite- a poor result

Going up to fish the Tummel next week and looking for a campsite in Pitlochry, I found the Milton of Fonab Campsite which looked ideal so emailed them. I explained that we are a group of anglers, fishing from dawn till dusk but the answer was nope, they do not accept groups of single sex parties. It was a very polite email, but still, pretty rubbish that a group of law abiding anglers cannot get a pitch on a camp site just because we are male………its a pity the law is not on our side….oh hang on it is..
UK Law on Equality and Discrimination

I think the pertinant line is

Currently, there is direct legislation dealing with discrimination on the grounds of sex, race and disability that applies in a number of fields, including employment, education, housing and the provision of goods and services.

Anyway, I have mailed them the link so will wait and see what they say

UPDATE

Having looked at some reviews, most notably here I am glad I got somewhere else. It seems a little cramped and a bit of a money making excercise with a busy road running past it….ugh avoid !!

  1. Just offer to be respectable and only take the 5 kegs of beer and half the block of hash.

  2. Yes – this is clearly unacceptable, and my first thought was to wonder which of you lot has the legs to wear a skirt.

    I could understand not wanting to rent to a bunch of fly fishers – as a rule they’re a sorry bunch with a prediliction for satanic worship and sexual atrocities against livestock – but a blanket rule against groups of men is simply unacceptable.

    I’m pulling for you from the states.

  3. Report them to Visitscotland, if they are listed as one of their accommodation providers….
