We have talked a lot before about why we leave only footprints when we stay in an area in our motorhome. And as a family and company we really do feel its such an important issue for so many reasons.
Scottish Outdoor Access Code (outdooraccess-scotland.scot) details in full what is expected and gives up to date information. This explores that you can in Scotland go on most land as long as you do so responsibly. This access code applies to most places we visit in a motorhome such as hills/moors, forests/woods, coasts/beaches, rivers/lochs, parks and some farmland. Those access rights include walking, cycling, climbing, horse-riding, swimming and watching wildlife.
The main principles of the code are,
There are so many places to ensure that you can follow the code and using those places to dispose of waste responsibly whether that is domestic waste or chemical waste. Use the link we give you to find motorhome pit stops in you area for disposing of waste or we recommend staying on a campsite every 3rd night so you can dispose of waste.
The principles are really simple and they make sure everyone has a good holiday, the last thing anyone wants is a stressful holiday and adding to that people who have littered, disposed of waste or left a mess behind. We have often had to spend time tidying up after others and although it gives a sense of achievement it also makes you sad that others don’t follow the “leave only footprints” memoir that we stick by.
