We’re lucky in Scotland to have incredible countryside and world-class access rights, giving us loads of options for nights out under the stars!
While we’ve all seen photos of perfect camping spots with stunning views, clear skies and not a midge in sight, it’s fair to say that Scotland can throw all sorts of surprises at unsuspecting camper - as TikTok star Jarad Rowan found out while making this film in the Scottish Borders.
However, by planning ahead and following the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, almost anyone can plan a fun wild camp – and we’re here to help you with the simple top tips below.
Wherever you go wild camping, remember to always leave no trace and #RespectProtectEnjoy!
