Scottish Moorland Forum

Guidance on electric fences and public access on moorland

This short paper has been developed by Scotland's Moorland Forum and the National Access Forum to help land managers integrate electric fencing commonly used to exclude deer from grouse moors with public access. The guidance aims to promote good practice in the present regulatory context, but some members of the National Access Forum consider that long lengths of electric fencing on moorland should require planning consent.
