Heading for the Scottish Hills



Access to Scotland's hills takes place under Scottish Access Rights. These rights must be exercised responsibly and land managers have to manage their land responsibly regarding access. The Scottish Outdoor Access Code explains what this means for hillwalkers: Deer management can take place during many months of the year but the most sensitive time is the stag stalking season (from 1 July to 20 October, but with most stalking taking place from August onwards). During this season, you can help to minimise disturbance by taking reasonable steps to find out where stalking is taking place and by taking account of advice on alternative routes. Avoid crossing land where stalking is taking place. Stalking does not normally take place on Sundays.
