With many more people now travelling to enjoy the hills, we have been made aware of instances of inconsiderate parking in busy areas near popular Munros.

Please think of others when you park your car and avoid causing any obstruction by blocking access to driveways, entrances to fields and buildings or making it difficult for others to use a road/track.

If an area is so busy that you're finding parking difficult, you may want to consider going somewhere with less people to avoid potential exposure to coronavirus.

You can read more about the Scottish Outdoor Access Code here - there will be a quiz on this next week!
