A free ScotWays publication – Access to the Outdoors in Scotland: A summary of relevant court decisions – can now be downloaded from the ScotWays website.

This publication provides summaries of 132 court decisions in various fields that have a bearing on outdoor access: access rights, public rights of way, private rights of way (servitudes), liability, and navigation and foreshore rights. It includes cases from a previous ScotWays publication (Rights of Way: the authority of case law) and summaries of cases that have previously appeared on the ScotWays website. But all these cases have been reviewed and updated, and many other cases of interest have been added.

The bibliography at the end of the publication provides links to other useful downloads and websites.

You can download the publication free of charge from the ScotWays website (just click on the link below). It is designed to be used as an electronic publication, but ScotWays can provide printed versions at a cost of £20 to cover printing costs, plus £1 postage.
