    So, camping at shell island this weekend for a good ol fish. What sneaky methods can we employ to have a camp fire that wont leave marks on the grass? Currently thinking a fire bucket in several bricks.. any ideas or methods you use?

    bucket of sand and petrol mixed together and hung from a tripod - use steel poles for the tripod not your beach tripod.

    We use the top of an oil drum supported on steel pegs The oil drum is around 30cm deep. We use it as a bbq first then top up with logs for a camp fire there is no damage to the grass.

    Taken from the walkscotland website:

    If you feel you must have a fire, and it is safe to do so, dig up a square of turf and put it to one side so it can be placed back over the site of your fire to ensure no trace is left behind. Line your fireplace with large stones to prevent it spreading. Remember too that coniferous wood can spit sparks, damaging expensive fleece jackets, or tents pitched too close.

    Is there some kind of ban on open fires then ? Maybe it's not just damage to the grass they are concerned about but the more likely damage caused by open fires getting out of control ?
