Equestrian Access Fact Sheets

Equestrian Access Fact Sheets

This set of fact sheets has been produced by the British Horse Society in association with Scottish Natural Heritage and the Paths for All Partnership. They complement the summary Information Sheet contained in the Lowland Path Construction Guide and provide details on principles, path construction, surfacing, gates, bridges, water crossings and road crossings when providing for equestrian use.

Scottish Moorland Forum

Guidance on electric fences and public access on moorland

This short paper has been developed by Scotland's Moorland Forum and the National Access Forum to help land managers integrate electric fencing commonly used to exclude deer from grouse moors with public access. The guidance aims to promote good practice in the present regulatory context, but some members of the National Access Forum consider that long lengths of electric fencing on moorland should require planning consent.

Signs relating to access and locked gates - Summary messages on good practice

The National Access Forum considered possible approaches which could be taken to ensure that locked gates and access-related signs comply with the principles of the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

The Forum agreed to compile a range of concise messages summarising good practice in relation to locked gates and signs which could be used as appropriate, along with links to existing guidance if further detail is required and this is supplied in this 3 page document.
