Research on Monitoring Responsible Behaviour among Recreational Users and Land Managers

This survey was commissioned in 2008 to monitor responsible behaviour among recreational users and land managers. The aim was to investigate trends in attitudes and behaviour with respect to use of the outdoors since access rights under the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 (the Act) and the Scottish Outdoor Access Code (the Code) came into effect in 2005. Results were compared to a Baseline Survey conducted in 2002/03 and a three year interim monitoring study (2005-2007). The study also compared survey data from the general public with results from the Scottish Recreation Survey (ScRS).
