We are developing a pioneering Scotland-wide path network for the benefit of all and we need volunteers in Orkney to help us. This is a great opportunity to improve your confidence in navigation skills and help you learn more about your local area. In Orkney you will be auditing data on existing paths or capturing new, currently un-mapped paths. You will be: -Participating in a short training workshop -Working with the Ramblers Scotland team to gather or capture data on paths in Orkney. -Audit data on existing paths or capture new, currently un-mapped paths. -Accurately assessing local Orkney paths to best capture the type of information we’re looking for -Providing feedback on the process to help inform the project going forward We believe that everyone should be able access the outdoors in Scotland with confidence and there is great potential to improve the mapping of paths in Scotland, to help more people get active and healthy and to feel confident to explore our wonderful nature and landscapes.

We believe that everyone should be able access the outdoors in Scotland with confidence and there is great potential to improve the mapping of paths in Scotland, to help more people getting active and healthy and to feel confident to explore our wonderful nature and landscapes. That’s why we need you to help us to develop a pioneering Scotland-wide path network for the benefit of all. We need community path volunteers to get out and about in their local area and review existing paths and record new paths. The next step will be to develop new local routes for health, heritage, and nature to encourage people to get out and about and explore their local area.

Help us to develop a pioneering Scotland-wide path network for the benefit of all. This is a great opportunity to improve access to your local area and learn more about your local path routes. You’ll work within your local area to audit existing paths capturing information on their condition and if they are part of a larger network. We also ask you to capture the hidden paths in your local area and add them to the path network. With support and training you will be asked to use online apps to record the information on our path network on your phone or at home. Once we have captured the paths we can support your local community to develop local routes for health, heritage or nature to encourage people to get out and about and explore their local area. https://www.ramblers.org.uk/mappingscotlandspaths
