It is a right that pre-dates the invention of the motor vehicle.  As I understand it, you can't drive willy-nilly over private property because that causes damage.  However, if there is an established car track, that would be okay.  I didn't drive, but cycled.  If a landowner was about, we invariably waved and had a chat about what I was doing and I never felt that my presence was resented - although no doubt there are some landholders in Sweden who feel a bit that way.  I never went anywhere near people's farmhouses.  There would be lots of rune stones and viking relics you would never get to see if you couldn't go on private property.

  Andrew didn't state whether Sweden allows motor vehicles onto private land - are they allowed or only walkers?                                       Michael
