5 Reasons to Go Wild Camping

If the term ‘wild camping’ makes you shudder at the thought of roughing it, maybe think again. There are plenty of reasons to go wild camping and ‘wild’ doesn’t necessarily mean being eaten by bears – wild camping is just a more interesting way of saying you’re not paying to stay at a campsite.

It is good manners to ask the farmer or landowner for permission first though.
