With Scotland’s travel restrictions changing you may be planning to come and visit the Park. Which is great, the Park was designated as a green space for people to use. However nothing is open like it was before the lock down so here is some advice and information to help you before you travel.
All of our car parks are now open, but you may want to have a few places to visit in mind before you get here. If it looks busy; it is busy, so maybe consider visiting other parts of the Park.
Bring hand sanitiser with you and sanitise your hands before and after touching gates or other shared surfaces.
The saying “Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footprints” is more important now than ever. Please take your rubbish home with you. Help us keep the Park looking at its best, picking up litter and emptying bins takes up time our amazing, staff could be putting into improving the Park for visitors and wildlife.
Try and keep 2m from others, not all paths are wide enough for people to walk by so think ahead and keep an eye on who is coming and where might be the best place to pass each other. Please also be considerate to those living and working in the Park and keep your distance and giving thought to where you are parking your car.
The toilets at our Visitor Centres are still closed for now so please plan accordingly. Short visits are recommended but you never know when you need to go! If you have to, make sure you know how to ‘go’ in the great outdoors follow the advice offered by Mountaineering Scotland.
The Park is here for everyone to use, but everyone has to be responsible, making sure they do the right thing when visiting. You can find out your responsibilities when accessing the countryside in the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
We hope you enjoy your visit, we love seeing your images of you having fun so don’t forget to tag us in in your social media posts #clydemuirshiel
