Wild Camping

Fancy getting off the beaten track? If you don’t mind sacrificing the usual day-to-day comforts and conveniences and want to explore the areas of Scotland that very few visit, then wild camping is for you. It’s a great way to discover remote parts of our stunning landscapes and get close to nature. Plus, the experience definitely comes with a great feeling of adventure!

If you’re planning a wild camping trip, be sure to familiarise yourself with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. It’s not complicated – basically, campers should follow a policy of ‘leave-no-trace’.

Here are some top points to follow:

  • Avoid overcrowding by moving on to another location if it’s already a busy spot.
  • Use a stove or leave no trace of any camp fire. Never cut down or damage trees.
  • Take away your rubbish and consider picking up other litter as well.
  • If in doubt, ask the landowner. Their advice just might help you find a better camping spot.
