Camping on the SUW


    camping-on-the-suw.gifTo many walkers the idea of camping along the route is an exciting prospect providing a real sense of freedom, however, whilst ‘wild’ camping is possible we strongly recommend that walkers make every effort to ensure this is carried out with the upmost of care.

    Camp sites across the route are limited and do not always present themselves at the ideal location to match walker’s itineraries.

    There are several bothies across the route, see: SUW Bothies

    For further information follow the links from our accommodation page:

    We also recommend that walkers are familiar with the Outdoor Access Code, for further information go to:
    www.outdooraccess-scotland.com

    What the Code says
    Access rights extend to wild camping. This type of camping is lightweight, done in small numbers and only for two or three nights in any one place. You can camp in this way wherever access rights apply but help to avoid causing problems for local people and land managers by not camping in enclosed fields of crops or farm animals and by keeping well away from buildings, roads or historic structures. Take extra care to avoid disturbing deer stalking or grouse shooting. If you wish to camp close to a house or building, seek the owner’s permission. Leave no trace by:
    -taking away all your litter;
    -removing all traces of your tent pitch and of any open fire (follow the guidance for lighting fires);
    -not causing any pollution.
