There's an article coming up on Radio/Scotland / Jackie Brambles shortly.

Well?

Edit. Forget it. it was about 60 seconds long!

Summary: Yes it is good to get your kit off in the countryside

Wintertime is the time to do it.

Less dog walkers etc = less chance of getting caught.

....and of course, less midges.

Of course, you could go skinny dipping and just wait, submerged, for any passers by, pass on by. Or you pass out from the cold.

Terrible idea. What happens when you need to call a solicitor urgently (as you might), and discover that you forgot to put your mobile phone in the pocket that you're not wearing?

It is indeed good to get your kit off in the countryside. But not in Britain, sadly. :(

but the plus side is that you are likely to get free board and lodgings - organised by the local constabulary. :)

There's no law against getting your kit off - as long as you're not 'Causing offence'.

There is a noody beach near here and locals are encouraged not to go along and gawk......at the naked pensioners.

I'd be careful about testing the "causing offence" opinion of the Polis. I seem to remember that the naked rambler spent much of his time in Barlinnie, Saughton and Perth prisons.
Anyway - with points further north of Sunny Lossie, frostbite may be a problem. :)

The chilly temperatures probably means there is even less chance of causing offence.....

There are occasions for it in Jockland. I've enjoyed a munro in my birthday suit - above the midge-line at the time.

Sadly Stephen Gough's experience tells us Jockland is not a Free Country. Their dress code is qualitatively no different to what the Saudis or Taliban impose on women, with differences only in where they draw the line.
