Introduction

The Act and Code Guide

Scotland has the land reform act which enables you to legally wild camp, there are some details to this so check out the link for more information.

The ability to freely enjoy the outdoors and backcountry areas I believe is fundamental right to everyone and if combined with good education in the outdoors especially at a young age will help protect the natural environment. I believe if more people are aware of how much fun, excitement and emotional well being comes from spending time outdoors then people will be more inclined to protect it.

Wildlife

Great wildlife to be found when Wild Camping in the Cairngorms.

For the first few days I would be on my own relaxing in woodland loosing track of time, reading, drinking organic matcha tea and spotting pine martins across the river I was camped next to. Hard life when you are wild camping in The Cairngorms.

Spending time alone in the outdoors make everything feel that little bit more adventurous and immersive.

The last two days I would join Swedish outdoor brand Fjällräven for some woodland training and brand awareness.

What’s great about meeting like minded people is that no matter where you are from the mutual respect and fondness for nature always shines through.

Just a few photos from the week and a couple from the training.
