All persons using the Affric Kintail Way do so at their own risk and are expected to take responsibility for their own actions, the safety of themselves and their companions, the welfare of livestock and wildlife, and the avoidance of damage to crops in the land through which they must pass – as laid down in the recommendations of the Scottish Outdoor Access Code which followed on the Scottish Land Reform Act of 2003.
While the AKW Group has taken every care to ensure that the path route it has established is as safe as possible under the constraints imposed by the terrain, our function has been simply to facilitate the setting up of this long-distance path. Our agreements with all landowners have been of an informal nature, based mainly on the mutual benefits to both proprietors and walkers of having an easily defined route across land, which minimises risk of disturbance to livestock and crops, and risks to the safety of walkers.
All walkers should have read the section on the Scottish Outdoor Access Code
The AKW Group cannot accept responsibility for any accident or injury sustained by persons using the Affric Kintail Way.
