Scotland's path network extension plan unveiled

Scotland's walking and cycling paths are to be extended by 500 miles over the next five years in a bid to get people more active.

Thirty new long-distance routes are to be added to the network of trails and cycleways across Scotland.  Some existing paths will also be extended and repaired.

Ian Ross, chairman of SNH, said:

"The most important thing is to give people the chance to access and enjoy the outdoors close to where they live - irrespective of their age or mobility.

On the back of that, we hope that people will embrace healthier, more active and sustainable lifestyles."
