The purpose of the project is to collect as much knowledge of old paths in Scotland as possible and to promote the existence and the heritage of these paths. It is hoped that by providing this information it will give an added dimension to your walks when you discover these lost pathways for yourself. Also if you are able to help by sharing your own knowledge which we can add to the database you will be contributing towards future generations’ enjoyment of our vast number of old paths.
Heritage Paths - The Next Stage
In 2010, Heritage Paths finished its first three-year project to identify historic paths, research them and promote them - this website is the principal fruit of that project. The project continues, predominantly run by volunteers with support from the ScotWays office. From 2010 to 2013, the project received funding to concentrate its activity to an area in and around the Campsie Fells. This website and the book we are writing will continue to have a remit of the entire country. What is next? Heritage Paths is currently working in partnership with the Fife Coast & Countryside Trust, Fife Council and the Pilgrimage Routes Forum to rediscover and develop an ancient pilgrimage route between Dunfermline and St Andrews.
This website is a central bank containing information on all of the usable paths that we have found out about so far and is continually being added to. As much as possible we would like to know about the paths that you know about and have walked and we would like you to add your knowledge of these paths to our database.
