Today marks the 15th Anniversary of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003. The act was a landmark piece of legislation for Scotland giving the public freedom to access and enjoy Scotland’s natural heritage provided they do it in a responsible manner.

Depending upon my mood I’m fisherman, hill walker, (very) amateur photographer, conservationist and an outdoor enthusiast generally, this legislation is crucial to my recreational activities and I suspect many of our followers benefit from the act in similar ways….here’s to the next 15 years!


Eglin Lane looking upstream to the Merrick and Kirriereoch Hills. Eglin Lane emanates from Loch Enoch which lies nestled at the bottom of these hills.


Eglin Lane and the Black Garpel (coming in on the right) confluence. It really is a stunning landscape.
