Look out for new routes to walk, cycle and ride near you as we extend and improve the National Walking and Cycling Network (NWCN).
The NWCN builds on existing path and trail networks such as Scotland’s Great Trails, the National Cycle Network and canal towpaths. The project will close key gaps, upgrade connecting routes, link to public transport and promote shared use of paths. Active travel and recreation will be easier and more accessible as a result – which means that we all win. It’s good for our health and well-being and for Scotland’s nature and landscapes. And as better routes attract more visitors and tourism, it’s good for local businesses and the wider economy too.
