For an interesting article on wild camping up in Scotland pop on over to Cameron McNeish’s blog and read his posting ”Wild Camping In Scotland“. Which discusses being a responsible wild camper, and the current attempts to educate the masses as to what those responsibilities are.
“The recent petition on legalising wild camping in England and Wales […]
If you happen to check by from time to time you may be wondering why it is a little quiet in light of some of the articles appearing on various Blogs etc. This may explain any apparent lull in proceedings:
“The campaign steering group are cognisant of the effort many organisations & individuals are putting into the current Marine […]
The E-P’s backers are considering the next move and the level of support.

Was it only only last week that Darren posted on reaching the 1,500 total?
Now, in less than a week, its jumped up to 1,631.
If you’ve arrived here as a result of our recent mailing to University Outdoor Clubs…….thanks for the support.
Right. Three weeks left to go - 2,000+ is achievable.
Told all your friends, family, workmates yet?
There’s a 3 page spread in the latest magazine (now available in W H Smiths) plus a mention in the editorial. The E-P is given prominent coverage in the article which covers campaigns for greater countryside access. A very positive piece with some interesting comments from those representing the landowner’s interests.
And if you’ve happen to have just […]
