Scottish Outdoor Access Code

Scottish access rights apply to most land and inland water. Whether you're enjoying fresh air in a local park, walking the dog, hillwalking, mountain biking, horse riding or kayaking, access rights apply to you.

To find out more about your rights and responsibilities, please visit the Scottish Outdoor Access Code website.

We all share a responsibility to respect each other's activities and interests in the outdoors, and to take care of our own and others' safety.
