Path checking volunteers - Orkney

  • VO74891
  • Suitable for groups


Description

Volunteers are needed to regularly walk a section of the St Magnus Way to check the route, clear litter and vegetation and possibly do some grass strimming.

The St Magnus Way is a 58-mile pilgrimage route through Mainland Orkney, inspired by the life and death of Magnus, Orkney’s patron saint.

You would be maintaining your section to keep it accessible and safe for users and you would be reporting any issues to the St Magnus Way committee to manage.

A great way to get outdoors, keep fit and enjoy the scenery and wildlife while conserving Orkney's long distance path for local walkers and visiting pilgrims.
