Outdoor Discoveries

What originally was a news section for the rest of the website soon became a place for me to write about human-powered wanderings in the countryside. Photography inspires me to get out there, mostly on foot these days, though cycling got me started. Musings on the wider context of outdoor activity complete the picture, so I hope that there is something of interest in all that you find here. Thank you for coming!

Public Rights of Way in North Lanarkshire

9th September 2007

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.
