Hi everyone desperately need some help.

I have receive a penalty notice charge from South lanarkshire council Scotland for parking in a restricted parking zone.

The street I parked on did not have yellow lines or any marked bays. There was a sign at the start of the zone stating it's a restricted parking zone during Mon to sat 8 am till 6pm. Permit holders only however there were no additional signs on the rest of the roads (I travelled along two separate roads after the zone entr6 sign before I parked)

I was of the understanding they were required to have signs all along the road to confirm you were still in a restricted zone.

I've attached the sign and the ticket
Thanks for any help

So you saw the sign and just ignored it ? There is no requirement for repeater signs, only that they are "recommended" for large zones.

Yes I saw the sign when I entered a road that had double yellows, when I drove onto two different roads with then no yellow lines I assumed as there was no repeater signs I was no long on a restricted road

Then you just misunderstood the sign I'm afraid, restricted zones do not need any yellow lines. The zone ends when you pass a sign that says "zone ends", like this one: https://www.google.com/maps/@55.7637869,-4....3312!8i6656

If it were a really big zone you could argue there should be reminder signs, but on your own version of events you knew about the signs but were not aware of their meaning. Unfortunately misunderstanding a sign is not a basis to appeal.
