Following the publication of the Scottish Government’s Route Map through and out of the crisis, we have worked with the forestry sector and safety body representatives to develop guidance on how the forestry sector can safely restart.

We have also published our first Corporate Plan (2020-2023) and Business Plan 2020-2021, which provide us with a framework to restart and recover from the impacts of coronavirus.

Accessing the outdoors

It is important to stay active and connected to nature for your health and wellbeing and you should follow current Government rules when doing so.

Rights of responsible access to most land in Scotland, including paths, continue to apply. It is therefore essential to comply with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
