Now available on the Scottish Land & Estates website, guidance to help members who wish to incorporate advice on responsible access to the outdoors in schools visits to farms and estates.
The guidance provides links to the sizable array of resources that are available to help explain responsible access in Scotland to schools groups in a fun and accessible way.
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 recognized as an ongoing task which has no defined end point, and which a great many organizations 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 school farm or estate visits.
