The Scottish landscape is justly famed for its beauty and diversity, and Scots law provides good opportunities for people to enjoy access to this land. This book aims to provide a user-friendly guide to the law of access in Scotland. It explains how the law works to regulate access to Scotland’s outdoors, who might be entitled to access land or inland waters, and the activities people are entitled to do there.  An understanding of the multi-layered framework of the law is crucial to clarify the rights and responsibilities of users and landowners/occupiers, and to minimise and resolve conflict.

Published in 2018, this book will be of particular value to access professionals and advisers but is also suitable for general readers who are broadly interested in the subject or are seeking an answer to a specific point. There is an accompanying leaflet that can be downloaded.
