Signage Guidance for Outdoor Access - A Guide to Good Practice

This guidance covers all aspects of outdoor access signage and is aimed at access staff, countryside rangers, land managers, community groups (including health walk co-ordinators) and anybody involved in path or site management. This new guide supersedes and greatly expands on the advice given in the ‘Advisory Signage Guide’ published by Paths for All and Scottish Natural Heritage in June 2007.

Cattle and public access in Scotland - Advice for farmers, landowners and other livestock keepers

This sheet describes the major hazards to members of the public associated with keeping cattle, including bulls (uncastrated bovine animals of 10 months or over) and newly calved cows, where the public have access to land in Scotland. It suggests reasonably practicable ways of controlling those hazards for walkers. Land managers should also consider risks to other users of public access routes, such as horse riders and cyclists.
