Bivy Bag Nights

Sleeping under the stars in remote locations is one of the delights of life. In the UK I have slept on many remote uninhabited islands, at extreme points, tripoints and on the summits of counties.

Urra Moor (Round Hill) – North York Moor

In Scotland you can virtually wild camp anywhere. In England and Wales this is not the case. The law permits walking on public rights of way and CRoW land but camping is not allowed without the permission of the land owner.

In England “on public rights of way I have a right to pass and re-pass, take rest and/or sleep so long as it is not in a tent”. Roll out the bivy!
