Guidance on hosting / leading activities for visits to Farms and Estates

The official responsibility for publicising the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, which provides guidance on access rights and responsibilities, lies with Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and the 34 access authorities in Scotland (32 local authorities, plus the 2 national park authorities).  Much has already been achieved in this respect, and in promoting what is meant by responsible access, but it is also recognised as an ongoing task which has no defined end point, and which a great many organisations and individuals need to provide support with to be truly successful.

One such way that landowners can help is to include information on Scottish Access Rights and Responsibilities into farm or estate visits.  The two documents attached are designed to provide ideas for how this might be achieved, and to give an easy reference point for the variety of materials that are available to assist.  One document is aimed at school and youth organisation visits, and the second will be useful for planning visits by adult groups.
