The preparation of a Core Paths Plan is a statutory duty for the National Park Authority under Sections 17-20 of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003. The National Park Authority Board adopted the Plan on 23 June 2010.

A review of our Core Paths Plan has been taking place over the last year which proposes 81km of additional Core Path (11% of the network) and the removal of 4km (which is less than 1% of the current network). A public consultation on the proposed amendments was open from 23rd November 2018 until 26th April 2019. we are pleased to present our proposed updates to the Core Paths Plan which is now available for public consultation. Responses will now be considered. You can find out more about the consultations on our consultations page.
