Access to the tracks on the following pages can rarely be regarded as an absolute right by the cyclist or walker. Almost all land is private and it is often only the good nature of the owners that allows us to travel unhindered over the land. In Scottish law the term trespass implies nuisance or damage. In practice sensible conduct removes any possibility of nuisance. Respect the grouse season (12th August to 10th December) and deer stalking (stags: 1 July to 20th October, and hinds: 21st October to 15th February). Your author has not once met with any animosity in meeting gamekeepers. Only good conduct will ensure continued access. Cyclists – stay on the trail and slow down!
Conservation of the wild areas of Scotland is of paramount importance. Users of this guide must appreciate that the very ground over which you walk or cycle will be damaged if care is not taken. Please do not use a bike on soft peat paths and tread carefully on other than a stony track. Many of the tracks are themselves and eyesore. So-called development can cause irreparable damage. Make sure, as walkers and cyclists we encourage conservation of our wilderness areas without the pressure of our activities causing further damage. In publishing this book great responsibility is placed on you, the reader, to respect the needs of the region. If all you need is exercise – go to a sports centre! If you appreciate the unique qualities of these wild places they are yours to enjoy – with care! Careless conduct not only damages what we seek to enjoy, but equally seriously gives landowners good reason to restrict access.
