Walkers, mountain bikers and 4×4 drivers have been warned to stay away from a forest as police respond to a large gathering.
Officers were called to Forest of Ae in Dumfries and Galloway at around 12.40am on Sunday.
Police remain in attendance and are engaging with those present.
The force said its approach throughout the pandemic has been to “engage with the public” and encourage compliance with the coronavirus restrictions, however officers “will not hesitate” to use enforcement powers as a last resort.
A police spokesman said: “Around 12.40am on Sunday, May 30, police received a report of a large crowd gathering within the Forest of Ae near to Dumfries.
