A number of country sports and land management organisations in Scotland have now published their guidance for employers, employees and practitioners to allow these activities to move forward following lockdown. This important publication coincides with the relaxation on some tourism activities and the relaxation of the five mile travel restriction for leisure activities. As more people will now be able to enjoy country sports again in the coming weeks and months in Scotland this guidance is timely. Read the full document here.
The guidance covers game shooting, deer stalking, wildfowling, gamekeeping and fishing. The framework will also be used to signpost new or amended Scottish Government guidance and legislation and will be linked from the Scottish Government website.
The organisations that have produced this guidance are The Association of Deer Management Groups (ADMG), the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), the Scottish Association for Country Sports (SACS), The Scottish Countryside Alliance (SCA), The Scottish Country Sports Tourism Group (SCSTG), the Scottish Gamekeepers Association (SGA) and Scottish Land & Estates.
