Land Reform (Scotland) Act
Landholders have allegedly blocked or deterred public access to Scotland’s paths more than 1,000 times in recent years according to data logged by local authorities.
Landowners have been urged to remove locked gates and a fence on paths at Loch Na Bo Estate, near Lhanbryde, by Moray Council and others. The Scottish Rights of Way and Access Society (ScotWays) and walking charity, Ramblers Scotland, said the estate had “ignored” its duty to ensure access rights.
Private security staff hired by Donald Trump to guard his Aberdeenshire golf course hid their handcuffs after concerns were raised by police.
