It’s going to be great to once again have freedom to travel around Scotland more than 5 miles from home, from Friday 3rd July.
But we need to all think carefully when planning where we head out beyond our local area this weekend.
On the one hand, it’s going to be a good idea to pick somewhere not too obvious, off the beaten track, to avoid overcrowding.
On the other hand, Mountain Rescue teams are going to be stretched with slower response times and fewer team members available than normal – so it is a good idea to stay well within the limits of your experience as Scotland opens up.
Remember also that some car parks and many public toilets may not be open. Let’s show we can all take our litter home and behave responsibly.
Let’s take pride in our stunning landscapes as we become lucky enough to enjoy them once more.
Let’s show that we deserve to live in such a beautiful country.
