Thumb's-up for quality detours. Nobody is being pig-headed about diverting. :thumbup:

It is not just the occasional resident in a remote dwelling that wishes to prevent people using a route because of a thoughless minority.

Jeez, don't give the homeowner ideas, next time I'm walking by there'll be a wall of wheelie bins! :lol:

Interesting wee development locally to this, up by Mugdock Country Park a scene of locked gates and notices to deter folks from crossing into 'farmed land' owned by 'The Estate'.
Breaking news, probably worthy of it's own thread, I'll need to find out exactly what's being discouraged and to what degree.

Of course the relevant Access Officer should be contacted.

I'm guessing that would be Stirling Council, same as this particular issue.
