Access Rights for Huts


I am looking to understand if access rights granted under the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 confer the right to be on and cross land to access a hut. For example when needing to cross a tract of estate owned land to get to my land with the hut.

Given the act grants the right to be on private land and cross private land in Scotland for ‘recreational purposes’ (subject to various constraints and a necessity for responsible conduct) it would seem reasonable to me that this right applies to accessing a hut.

I will be reviewing the available case law and asking about this at the Hutters Rally on Saturday, however if anyone knows the answer and if any legal precedents have been set please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!
