If you're heading somewhere new to you, have a quick check before you go of the Scottish Outdoor Access Code . It says that you can exercise access rights for:
- Recreational purposes (such as pastimes, family and social activities, and more active pursuits like horse riding, cycling, wild camping and taking part in events)
- Educational purposes (concerned with furthering a person's understanding of the natural and cultural heritage)
- Some commercial purposes (where the activities are the same as those done by the general public), and
- For crossing over land or water.
The three key principles of the Code are:
- Respect the interests of other people
- Care for the environment
- Take responsibility for your own actions
