These pages give information about recreation in the area, what to do and where to do it. In order for us to improve these pages why not let us know your favourite/best recreation sites, including walking, diving, snorkelling, fishing, climbing, surfing, wildlife watching and any others you would like to share.
Since the introduction of the Access Code you can now access most inland areas in Scotland including the foreshore for the purposes of outdoor recreation, crossing land and some educational uses. The Scottish Outdoor Access Code gives you detailed information of your new rights and responsibilties when accessing land or as a land manager.
This legislation is fantastic for those wanting to enjoy our countryside, however, with these new rights come responsibilities;
If you choose not to abide by these guidelines, you forgo your access rights and maybe asked to leave by the landowner/manager. Please note, the Code does not apply to motorised forms of recreation.
