With a nation of holidaymakers desperate for a change of scene after two years of restrictions on movement and travel, the  Scottish countryside has never been so in demand. But what does this surge in traffic to the great outdoors mean for rural landowners and managers?

This guide provides a brief overview of the issues that landowners may face in relation to:

  1. Land access – the basics of the right of responsible access
  2. Wild Camping – how it can be managed
  3. Liability for injuries suffered by someone participating in dangerous activities
  4. Self catering property: Licensing and planning requirements
  5. Hosting events
