Wild Camping in The Cairngorms 2016/05/27
In this trip report I spend a week Wild Camping in The
Cairngorms. I was lucky enough to spot some great wildlife. Read our
full trip report.
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.
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.
