WHAT IS WILD CAMPING?
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.
