Access All Areas

The University of Aberdeen's May Festival runs from Friday 25 to Sunday 27 May.

Our Malcolm Combe is participating in the Festival, as the chair of a free event on Saturday 26 May at 11:00.

This is a panel event, on the topic of access to land, where Malcolm will be joined by Dr Heather Morgan (a lecturer in Applied Health Sciences at the University of Aberdeen), Eleisha Fahy from ScotWays, Bob Reid (who was heavily involved with the introduction of “access rights” by the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003) and Brian Harrison from Sport Aberdeen.

The discussion will explain how Scotland’s access regime has come to pass, how it works, the opportunities and challenges associated with increased outdoor access, the benefits of getting out and about, and means to facilitate outdoor access. Regarding the latter, it will do so with reference to Aberdeen’s original, free-to-play, location-based, augmented reality game (available at Apple’s App Store here) and organised walking tours of Aberdeen.

Whilst it is free, booking in advance is necessary to keep track of numbers. For more information, including a link for booking, please click here. (There is also a Facebook event here.)

The full May Festival programme is available online.
