Outdoor Access

The Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 gives the right of responsible non-motorised access (but allows for mobility scooters) to most land and inland water in Scotland. This responsible right of access extends to walking, including taking your dog for a walk, as well as cycling and Equestrian activities.

The Scottish Outdoor Access Code explains how you can take responsible access when out walking. It gives useful advice and guidance on how to act when faced with different situations.
