Stef, see I’m on the right day now
“National Trust and wild camping” sees Robin digging out some useful information on the National Trusts stance on the issue of the day.
“The Trust does not generally allow camping on non-recognised sites without permission. ‘Wild camping’, where permitted (for example in the Lake District, in upland areas above 450m), should be out of sight of the public highway, entail only one-night stopovers with a maximum of two campers and leave no trace of their presence.”
Duncan sees a significant number reached in the petition in “ePetition: The Beast has Landed“.
“The ePetition supporting the legalisation of wild camping in England & Wales has now reached 668. The Beast, the 666th person to sign up, was … Christine.”
TommyK has written two postings that will be of interest to people out there, the first “Scottish outdoor access code”
“The Scottish Outdoor Access Code gives detailed guidance on your responsibilities when exercising access rights and if you are managing land and water.
The Act sets out where and when access rights apply. The Code defines how access rights should be exercised.”
and “Current access legislation”
“In Scotland, the current access legislation (which came into effect in early 2005) is explicit about your right to wild camp on hill land providing you are at least 100 metres away from a public road.“
