Unnamed Loch - Added to Forests and Trees in Scotland

I have just added this to the map of places to fly your drone at Drone Scene:

Land owner permission not required.

As far as I can see you do not need permission to fly on Forestry Commission land as long as you're abiding by CAA requirements

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 30/01/2021. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.


Thank you @Each_Uisge for adding to the map

Those very kind folk at Forestry & Land Scotland have already given permission.

Fly a drone in a forest

You’re allowed to fly a drone on Scotland’s national forests and land, as long as you’re following the Civil Aviation Authority’s guidelines, including the Drone Code, and all other legal requirements, such as those relating to privacy/data protection, wildlife disturbance and the Health and Safety at Work Act.

The CAA guidelines and Drone Code include the requirement to have your drone in sight at all times, which may not be possible in some forested areas.

All pilots must follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and respect other people’s interests, care for the environment and take responsibility for your own actions.

If you want to fly drones for professional reasons, please contact the relevant regional office to apply for permission as early as possible in your planning.
