Solheim Cup Exemption Order

Temporary closure of public access

Exemption Orders are made under Section 1 of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 to temporarily remove the legal right of public access from an area for a special purpose. To allow for the organisation of the Solheim Cup it is proposed that areas involved will be closed for public access both in advance of and during the event.

The purpose for the proposed order is to provide for public safety and security prior to, during and after the Solheim Cup and to allow a charge to be made for admission to the event.

You can view the icon Solheim Cup Notice of the Proposed Order [71Kb] and the icon associated map [352Kb] showing the areas to be exempted. Some areas will be exempted before the event to allow for construction and organisation of the event infrastructure and these areas will be closed for public access between 26 August to 16 September. In addition further areas will be closed for public access between 9 and 16 September during the Solheim Cup. The closures include several core paths which are within the area of the exemption.
