Verify deer stalking just before heading to Scottish hills and mountains


Hillwalkers are getting encouraged to verify on the net for deer stalking information and facts just before setting out through the busiest element of the season.

Scottish All-natural Heritage (SNH) manages the Heading for the Scottish Hills site, which offers specifics on deer stalking on estates involving July and late October.

The site tends to make it simpler for walkers to stick to the guidance in the Scottish Outside Access Code to attempt to obtain out exactly where stag stalking is taking location and offers specifics on who to speak to for additional information and facts. It also incorporates routes that are “always okay” and days that stalking requires location on every estate.

The code also encourages walkers to stick to affordable guidance from land managers on option routes and to prevent crossing land exactly where stalking is taking location.

Fiona Cuninghame, SNH Recreation and Access Officer, mentioned: “This time of year is terrific for receiving outdoors and enjoying nature, but it is also a pretty busy time for land managers. The Heading for the Scottish Hills site is a fast way for hill walkers to verify exactly where deer stalking is taking location through the season.

“The web-site is updated with new information and facts as estates present it, so if you are organizing a trip and the hills you want to climb are not incorporated on the web-site, it is normally worth taking an additional appear nearer the time.”
