The Walker's Companion: The Ramblers Association

8 Tips For Wild Country Camping (p.85)

  • In England and Wales wild camping is not legal without the landowner's permission. In Scotland, follow the code issued by the Mountaineering Council for Scotland.
  • Look for a sheltered site, and try to find a flat, stoneless spot.
  • Don't camp in a hollow, or too close to a swollen river and make sure you face your tent away from the prevailing wind. 
  • Organise the inside of the tent for a quick exit in case of emergencies.
  • Don't cook inside the tent.
  • Leave wet clothes to dry in the tent porch. 
  • Site your 'toilet' at least 100 metres away from water.
  • Always leave the campsite as you found it.
