I have spent some time mooching around the forum and have come across some princely advice WRT permissions etc. There are, however, still some parts I am unclear on, such as the rules for beaches/coastlines, this is quite important to me as I live on the clyde estuary.
I have read that a Crown Estates Permit is required but I have also read they are no longer issued... Can anyone clear this up for me?
I also live in a rural area and do know some of the local farmers so I think I'll be okay there.
Another question is the two federations(?) NCMD and FID to a novice(me) what is the benefit of belonging to one and which is best or should I join both?
Finally, as I haven't bought a detector yet, I am hoping to find advice on which is the best 'meet in the middle' device for using on farm/garden land and beaches.
Well, I should just say I am looking forward to getting myself a suitable detector and getting stuck right in.
Oh, and BTW anyone know of any clubs up in the west coast of Scotland, Glasgow/Dumbarton/Loch Lomond area?
Cheers for now
