Inverclyde Core Paths Network

'The Core Paths Plan and the paths network in Inverclyde are to encourage people to get out and about, be more physically active, improve their health and rely less on the car. It is about everyday trips to work, school, shops and services, as well as enjoying the outdoors for recreation. The Plan provides a framework of routes which is sufficient, as a whole, to give people reasonable access throughout Inverclyde.'

Renfrewshire Core Paths Plan

'The Core Paths Plan identifies the paths and routes that the public feel are the most important in the area for providing access by non-motorised means ... The Plan shows routes that are surfaced paths, dirt tracks, grass paths, pavements and minor roads. Access points have been shown to the National Cycle Network and to rivers and lochs in the area ... Not every route is suitable for everyone and therefore the plan also includes information about each route which will help you to decide whether a route is suitable for you or not.'

Weavers' Trail
Distance (miles)10

'The Irvine Valley towns of Darvel and Newmilns were, until recently, world famous in the manufacture of lace products ... Before the factory system was introduced with the advent of the power loom in 1872, lace was produced on handlooms in hundreds of cottages in the Valley. The handloom weavers in the days of this domestic system of manufacture then walked over the moor with their rolls of cloth to sell them in the markets of Paisley and Glasgow - hence the name The Weavers' Trail.'
