No sure they are sensible. I have read somewhere, and my experience
backs it up, is that the Scottish model works best for land above 2000
feet and the English/Welsh model works best for land below 2000 feet.

Being able to walk anywhere doesn't provide a means for actually walking
there. The English/Welsh system ensures that there is a way through a
series of fields, not just a right to walk there.
