Map Basics - Access Land
On the larger scale maps, such as the Ordnance Survey Explorer mapping (shown at 1:25k scale) you will notice large areas of yellowish ground, typically (but not exclusively) on higher ground. These areas offer certain additional freedoms to roam away from the rights of way. We’ll cover your access rights in another Basics post but for now, it will suffice for us to say that largely you can roam freely for recreation purposes over these areas.
