Crown Estates Scotland
« on: November 14, 2010, 05:31:00 PM »
Hi

Is there a map of the Scottish foreshore owned by The Crown Estates published anywhere on the internet or is the only source of info to apply to Ian Mills? Just want to be sure of where I can detect 'legally', hope to get my detector next week  ;D.

Regards   Mick

There is no map published by them. I have contacted them before and they have told me to let them know what area you are interested in and they will let you know.They own approx 55% of Scotland's shoreline.

Here in England you can download a permit free of charge to cover all beaches and foreshores.
Thought it was the same for Scotland?

Hi

I have a permit and have obtained a map of the foreshore in the Banff area. Would I be transgressing any protocols if I suggested posting of Crown Estates foreshore maps on this site?

Re the maps - yes it would be very useful. 
I recently obtained a permit from the Crown Estates website but I am being told by the crown estates scotland land agent that they think it only applies to England and Wales. Can you shed any light on this? Thanks, Simon.

Hi

As I understand it, Crown Estates owned foreshore maps are available on request. As previously stated, I have applied for and received one of these maps, as I'm sure many other members of this forum have. My suggestion was for each of us in receipt of aforementioned maps to post them to a location viewable by forum members to save the 'hassle' of applying to Crown Estates for information already available to us. I thought that this would be a valuable resource for the forum, but again, as previously expressed, I wanted to confirm that this didn't breach any forum guidelines.

Regards   Mick

Hi Mix,

I think you should post your suggestion onto the forum that is called, something like ... "Suggestions for improving the site" ... then the site administrator will atleast see it and can take actions to set up the facility.

Good luck with it - I for one would certainly use it.

Simon.

I think your proposal is a very good one and would be very helpful to detectorists in many ways   .Many detectorists on this forum do detect on a beach every so often, Ive done it myself. Having a portion of our forum which lists the parts you can legally go on and have a few hours relaxation would enhance the usefulness of this forum to our members I feel.

Call me stupid but I cannot find a link to apply for the Scottish beach permit.

I have the England and Wales version, does this also act as a permit for scotland too or is there a seperate one somewhere ?

It's the same one  :)

Smashing !

Thanks Puddock

You're very welcome  ;D
You will receive a permit by email which you can then print off.
It's almost instantaneous  :)

Was all ready to go off and get the permit for beach detecting but the site is not working?  Am I looking at the right link:

http://www.crownestate.co.uk/

Keep getting a Web Engine: page missing error when I try it.  Might be temporary I guess.  ???
