However, the Scots still allow you the opportunity to, quite literally, live wild and free. There are, of course, a few caveats, but they are largely aimed towards ensuring safety and limiting environmental impact. All required and very reasonable, in my opinion. It seemed too good to be true when I first heard about this. Now, on the other side of my trip, I can assure you it is entirely legitimate. Over ten days, I had several opportunities to test the limits of this freedom, and I&rsquom happy to report that I didn&rsquot encounter any. In fact, given my past experiences in India, I often expected that someone would show up and ask me to get moving along. But, on the few occasions I met someone near the camp, they were happy to see me there and often gave me suggestions of other great spots to look up further on my journey. This acceptance and encouragement of an outdoor-oriented lifestyle was a refreshing change for me.
