"Scotland is in danger of losing its traditional rights of access to the countryside. A draft Bill from the Scottish Parliament threatens to give landowners the right to remove the public's right of access to land & water. If made into law, this clause, & several others, would have the potential to wipe out healthy outdoor recreation in Scotland.
"Hillwalkers, climbers, skiers, kayakers, cyclists & horse riders all feel cheated & angry about this unworkable & divisive draft Bill, which if enacted would destroy the activities that many people in Scotland enjoy, & which thousands of visitors to Scotland travel to take part in each year."
