Also be aware of the provisions of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003, although it is restricted to areas where access rights are exercisable and should be done responsibly. The Scottish Outdoor Access Code suggests responsible criteria be followed, and wording in that Code relating to wild camping is as follows:

“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 avoid causing problem for local people and land managers by not camping in enclosed fields of crops or farm animals and keeping well away from buildings, roads or historic structures. 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. Remove all traces of your tent pitch and of any open fire (follow the guidance for lighting fires).” Cause no pollution.

Caravans, Motor-homes etc.

You would be advised to contact The Jura Ferry to ascertain whether your caravan or vehicle will clear the ferry ramp. Contact: Jura Ferry, ASP Ship Management, Port Askaig, Islay Tel: 01496 840681

Please do not use designated road passing places to park up overnight.
