It's amazing how things develop. After all, this blog started out as a news section for the rest of the website. With encouragement from readers, it has become a place for relating my countryside wanderings and musings about the world of outdoor activity. Walking, cycling and photography all are part of what I do out-of-doors and, hopefully, they will continue to inspire me to keep adding entries on here. Of course, there needs to be something of interest to you, dear reader, too and I hope that's the case. Thanks for coming.
While ScotWays do a good job on publicising public rights of the way going through Scottish hill country, their lowland cousins seem to fall into some sort of black hole. The facts that OS maps don’t depict Scottish rights of way like their English and Welsh counterparts. So it was with some interest that I stumbled on the Public Access section of North Lanarkshire Council’s website. There’s loads here of interest and the maps of the propose core path network are especially useful, especially for the Kilsyth hills and the Kelvin Valley. I wonder if other Scottish councils are planning to take a similar approach; it would be great if they did.
