Scottish Outdoor Access Code

Scottish Outdoor Access Code

The Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 provides a right of responsible access over much of Scotland's land and inland water. The Scottish Outdoor Access Code gives guidance on how to access the countryside responsibly, whether walking on your own, in a group or taking your dog. The Code also provides guidance for cycling, mountain biking, horse riding and various water sports.

The code is based on three key principles:

  1. Respect the interests of other people
  2. Care for the environment
  3. Take responsibility for your own actions
