Walking with dogs
You are welcome to take your dog on any right of way route but they must be on a lead or under close control. It is an offence to allow a dog to run free in a field where there are sheep. A farmer has the right to shoot a dog that is attacking or chasing livestock. You must clean up after your dog or you may be liable for a fine.
Rights of way (public paths)
You can walk on all public rights of way. Some are also open to horse riders, cyclists or motorists.
Anyone can apply to change a right of way.
