Overview

'You can enjoy access rights responsibly on most land, but many people prefer to use paths. We have developed paths and path networks to make it easier for you to enjoy the outdoors. We have created path networks around the main towns, where most people live ... We have also prepared a Core Paths Plan for Angus. This identifies a basic framework of paths throughout Angus. Over the next few years we will try to signpost all the core paths and make them accessible.'

'The benefits of establishing core paths are simple in that most people taking access in the outdoors do so by following paths and a network of formally identified routes makes for easier, more enjoyable, access opportunities for everyone. In this way it is hoped that core paths will assist landowners in managing access over their land and will receive resources to help maintain them and in some cases upgrade them ...
