Core Paths [in Scotland]


'We are a partnership of organisations committed to promoting walking for health and the development of multi-use path networks in Scotland.'

'Since 2005 Local Authorities and National Park Authorities (Access Authorities) have been busy preparing Core Paths Plans (CPP). Under the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 every Access Authority has a duty to prepare a CPP. Some plans have been completed whilst others are still going through the planning process. If you would like to know more about the process of making a plan have a look at Core Paths Plans: A Guide to Good Practice.'


'Scottish Government has designated the National Walking and Cycling Network (NWCN) as a national development in the latest National Planning Framework. The development of a strategic network of well-maintained long-distance paths and trails through Scotland will enhance visitor and recreation experiences for all users, as well as supporting active travel and improving health and well-being. Scottish Natural Heritage, along with Sustrans and Scottish Canals, are leading this project ...'
