Proposed code is published today. You can read it at
www.snh.org.uk/soac. For those NOT in Scotland - read it and weep!
When it comes to public rights of way I have to say that I think the
situation in Scotland is miserable. Only 1% are declared legal by the
courts and the rest are in a legal limbo.
Whilst a general presumed right of access might seem better, I'd love
to see all rights of ways in Scotland validated by the courts and
recorded by the OS on scottish maps.
I wouldn't. I am worried it would lead to erosion. Even on some
very popular hills there are so many ways to the top that the
pressure is evened out.
