Current opportunity

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.
