Using Inland Water Responsibly

This Guidance, developed by a partnership of Scottish Land and Estates, the Scottish Canoe Association, Paths for All and Scottish Natural Heritage, is intended to assist all water users to share inland water in Scotland in such a way that the interests of all are considered and respected.  The Guidance, developed through a process of consultation and consensus building, aims to demonstrate how the different interests of water users can be responsibly, proactively and positively integrated.  It is hoped that commercial and educational guides, coaches and instructors, riparian owners, fishing proprietors or their agents, fishing associations, ghillies etc, who regularly use inland water (lochs, rivers, canals and reservoirs) with clients, will brief them on the good practice guidelines in this document.. It is also hoped that clubs and individuals will follow this guidance.
