Frequently Asked Question


Are access rights/the right to roam different in Scotland from those in England and Wales?


Yes. Access rights are very different. In England and Wales the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 applies. This gives rights of free access only in certain areas that are mapped, though you will be able to use rights of way elsewhere. In Scotland, on the other hand, you can go anywhere that is not specifically excluded, provided that you behave responsibly.
