"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.
