Simon Says
Well Simon. All's well that ends well, some might say, despite you.

And the case for the defence is - that you were walking on someone's land, looking for someone to ask if you could walk on their land .......... have I got that right?
In court, I think that would get you an overnight on Van Diemen's Land

If you or any of us are serious about this kind of thing, and don't want to f/muck it up for the rest of us, needs must that we are all much more circumspect.
Your case for the defence may be innocent enough but it is absolutely not good enough.

If we are in unfamiliar terrain, it takes very little imagination and effort to find a track into a farmyard where we can ask with a "please may I ..." - a track covered every day by reps, vets and itinerants (not a field) ...., of the landowner or one that can advise us about other landowners in the area.

However if we want failsafe, would it kill us to do some research in advance? Whose farm? Whose land? Whose livelihood?
A phone call. A note. An email. Small price to pay for the alternative of all of us getting bucked off the place. Forever.

I grew up in a market town in mega-agricultural South West Scotland. I have only just regained consciousness after reading your bit about TB - which at the risk of waxing contentious, was a bit .... flip.

Here's the way it is, the way it always was and the way it always will be.
My house - my rules. Your house - your rules. Farmer's land - farmer's rules.

A good starting point to remind us how grateful we should be for the privilege of enjoying someone else's property.
[ Ed: it was one Charles Everett who was doing the walking not Simon Stewart - apologies if this wasn't clear.]

Cupidstown Hill: Enhance this with a visit to Oughterard
Bunsen7 a day ago.
Yes, perhaps this is not a very noteworthy hill. Cupidstown and Saggart Hill represent largely forest topped outliers of the Dublin/Wicklow range split from higher summits to the East by the N81. ...
