WHAT IS WILD CAMP­ING?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

Wild camp­ing means you can pitch up in some in­cred­i­ble lo­ca­tions. It’s also free, mak­ing a trip much more af­ford­able. It’s mostly il­le­gal in Eng­land and Wales, but thanks to Scot­land’s Land Re­form Act of 2003 you are now al­lowed to camp on most un­en­closed land north of the bor­der, with the ex­cep­tion of the east side of Loch Lomond which is sub­ject to spe­cific by­laws.

Things to con­sider:

Don’t camp in en­closed fields with crops or an­i­mals. Take your litter with you. If you need to use the loo in the wild, find a spot at least 30 me­tres from run­ning water and bury your of­fer­ings. A small trowel is handy for this, as is hand sani­tiser.

Baby wipes don’t re­place a shower, but stop you stink­ing.

Al­low time to set up. Don’t try pitch­ing a tent in the dark.

The Ap­ple­cross Inn. Try the fish and chips
