You may have read that off-roading/greenlaning isn’t legal here in Scotland as it is in England. The Scottish Outdoor Access Code allows the “right to roam” which allows you to access land by foot for recreation.
Highland Defenders is not an off-roading company, what we offer is an alternative to a traditional campervan, with 4×4 driving capability that allows you to tackle conditions, weather and routes that campers and motorhomes can’t. Therefore, recreational off-roading is strictly prohibited.
The Road Traffic Act 1988 states that you can drive a vehicle off-road – away from a public road – for the purpose of parking and within 15 yards of a public road, though landowner permission does need to be sought for private land and this does not apply to camping.
Please always use care and caution when driving on uneven surfaces, especially where boggy. Even the best 4×4’s can sink on the wrong terrain!
Our vehicles are fitted with trackers, and off-road driving outside of these guidelines will result in a forfeit of the security deposit.
