Outdoor Access

We now all have a statutory right of access to most land and inland water in Scotland.

The Scottish Outdoor the Access Code

The Scottish Outdoor Access Code outlines access rights and responsibilities are. 

The key to the access legislation is responsibility. 

The Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 expects land managers to manage their land responsibly to allow for access, but the public exercising their access rights must also behave in a responsible manner.

The Code is based on three key principles:

  • Respect the interests of other people

  • Care for the environment

  • Take responsibility for your actions
