[Talk-GB] Scottish National Park Rendering

Afternoon all,

Scotland's National Parks don't seem to show up on OpenStreetMap in
the same way as those in England & Wales…

I have recently added a relation for the Cairngorms NP[1], and this is
starting to show up as a boundary line at higher zoom levels, and I
presume this will gradually be completed as tiles are re-rendered. Is
it just a matter of time until the lower levels of zoom are rendered
with the green fill? The boundary line works in both Mapnik and
Osmarenderer layers, e.g. near Killiecrankie
http://osm.org/go/e6JnHFAu--

However, there has been a way in for the Lomond & Trossachs NP[2] for
some time, but this is only rendered as a boundary on the Osmarenderer
layer, but not Mapnik (either low or high zooms), e.g. near Balloch
http://osm.org/go/evXOkFN2-?layers=O

Is this to do with the direction of the way, should it be converted to
a relation (might be worthwhile anyway), or are there additional tags
that should be added? I have looked at other NPs and don't think the
latter is the case.

Not a massively important issue, but it just seems a bit strange, and
it would be nice to show these on the map.

Cheers, Donald
