Do I have the right to walk over private land to get to public land?
No. There is no general right of public access across private land. If there is any doubt about access and there are no signs indicating access, permission from the landholder should be sought. There may be valid reasons for farmers to deny access across their land and refusals should be accepted with good grace. If you have doubts then you should check with the local authority or contact the Commission.
