Following discussions with Police Scotland, Argyll and Bute Council will close Kidston Car Park, Helensburgh, during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Police Scotland advised that Kidston Car Park has been popular over the last few weeks with visitors parking their vehicles there and then walking along the esplanade. The local Inspector has asked the council if the car park can be closed to deter this from happening.
This decision is in line with the decisions already taken to close car parks in Luss, Arrochar and at Duck Bay.
National guidance is clear – only travel if it’s essential. We all have a duty to act responsibly and keep each other safe from the threat of COVID-19.
We want to welcome visitors back to Argyll and Bute, but once it is safe to travel.
