I know that it might be hard to believe this in Scotland, but due to the recent dry and hot weather we have a high risk of fire in the forests this weekend. Organisers of the RSAC Scottish rally request that spectators refrain from smoking while out on the stages or in spectator areas. Likewise fires and barbecues are not permitted in or around the forests and stages. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

As if the fire risks weren’t enough, there are also issues with Larch infection in the forests. Forest and Land Scotland have provided guidance to forest users on minimising the spread. We encourage you to read and follow it. Thank you. You can find the information HERE.
