Rispond - Keep Out!
Rispond - Keep Out!
You might think that you would be able to wander down to Rispond Bay and the pier - especially given the current Scottish access laws. But no! Not only can you not drive on from this gate (even though the map implies that the public road continues for another 100 metres), but even as a pedestrian it is made quite clear that you may not continue.

I am normally (unlike some walkers) tolerant of landowners wishing to maintain their privacy. What annoys me in this case is that the access is a public road, maintained at public expense, but benefitting nobody except themselves. If they wish to exclude everyone, then they should take over the responsibility for maintenance.
