​Ramblers Scotland celebrates its 50th anniversary with a new guide to accessing the outdoors

A charity has published a new, free guide to accessing and enjoying the outdoors.

Ramblers Scotland played a leading role in helping to secure world-renowned rights of access hrough the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 and has since been working to ensure walkers understand their responsibilities as well as their rights.

The Scotland on Foot booklet, published as the charity celebrates its 50th birthday, will help to continue this work.

James Lawson, convener of Ramblers Scotland, said: “We are incredibly lucky in Scotland to enjoy such amazing access rights. However we know not everyone feels confident in their rights and their responsibilities when they are outdoors, so not as many people are making the most of Scotland’s wonderful natural environment as they could be.

“In celebration of our 50th anniversary we wanted to give people in Scotland a gift, so we’ve produced a brand new booklet full of advice on what Scottish access rights mean to walkers.

“We hope this will help everyone feel more confident so that they can head out and enjoy the great outdoors much more often.”
