Legally, the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 gives the right of responsible non-motorised access (but allows mobility scooters) to most land and inland water in Scotland. This responsible right of access extends to walking, including taking your dog for a walk, as well as cycling and equestrian activities.

The Scottish Outdoor Access Code explains how you can take responsible access when outdoors. It gives useful advice and guidance on how to act when faced with different situations.

The Stirling Area Local Access Forum has also put together the 'Enjoy Stirling's Outdoors - Your Guide to Responsible Access' leaflet to help you on your way.

Please refer to the related links on the right to get all of the information you need about responsible access.
