One great thing about Scotland is the right to roam. The Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 allowed everyone the right to access land and inland water across the country. But us sheep have been doing it for much longer than that. This summer I’ve bumped into quite a few tourists who have been surprised to find us also wandering around freely enjoying the landscape.
