Access and Responsibility

Please be aware of the Scottish Outdoor Access Code  (Especially if you are not from Scotland)

Advice from the MCofS, including Wild Camping, Minimal Impact, Ticks, Where to 'Go' in the Outdoors, etc.

During the deer stalking season, typically September and October, you need to check access beforehand. Scottish Natural Heritage have launched a new Heading for the Scottish Hills website which provides deer stalking information for hillwalkers. Also, in the spring you need to be aware of lambing and/or calving and be prepared to change your route accordingly.

Under the Scottish Outdoor Access Code legislation, councils are required to draw up plans of "Core Paths" in their area. Some of these Core Paths are used in the Stevenson Way.

Argyll and Bute Council's Core Paths

Clackmannanshire Council's Core Paths

Fife Council's Core Paths

Highland Council's Core Paths

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Core Paths

Perth and Kinross Council's Core Paths

Stirling Council's Core Paths

 

We are working with the Forestry Commission to ensure suitable information on access is available on this web site. Details will be available here when this has been set up.
