    inform the police when you are going on,then if some one reports you the police will already know your there.

    dont think so my land has quite a few footpaths,also the local clay shoot has one that runs under the high tower.just have to be a bit more aware that someone might be about.

    I've got footpaths through my land too.
    If you have a land check then you just need to make it clear to them that you're aware of the routes of the paths, and will take them into consideration at all times.

    In Scotland they have the right to roam so nearly every where is a public footpath
