You must always make sure you are suitably prepared for any walks you undertake, as walking is never completely free from risk and requires a degree of common sense and judgement.

You can find some useful information on how to keep as safe as possible when walking at the Ramblers Society.

Responsible walking

It is important to be a responsible walker, and to respect everyone's activities and interests in the outdoors. Useful information on how to be a responsible walker can be found in the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and the Countryside Code.
