Scotland and permissions?

Post by Steve998 » Tue Jul 17, 2018 1:14 pm

I have searched this forum and Mr Google but find conflicting opinions. I hope someone here can answer.

My wife is dragging me up to Scotland next week, away from my new and only permission😳. So as compensation I thought I could take my MD with me for a little play.

Someone told me that the ‘right to roam’ legislation extends to metal detecting but I find this too good to be true, hence my search on google and no straight answer. And what about the tide line? Are beaches ok to detect on north of the border? I am a member of the NCMD, does the insurance extend that far?

Lots of stupid questions I know, sorry. Just wanting to find out if it is worth packing my MD!

Thank you

Steve

The "Right to Roam" DOES NOT include the right to detect. Still need permission.
Your NCMD covers you "In the North".
