Frequently Asked Questions

What are Paths For All networks?

Networks of linked, signposted routes are being created to improve access to the countryside around towns. Where possible routes are accessible to cyclists and horseriders as well as to walkers. Some of the routes are suitable for disabled users and families with pushchairs.

Where are path networks being developed?

Over the next few years path networks will be created around each of the Angus burghs. The Forfar, Arbroath, Brechin, Kirriemuir and Monifieth networks have now been completed. The first phase of path improvements around Carnoustie has been completed, and plans are underway for development of the Montrose network.

How are the routes chosen?

Members of the public and the landowning community are widely consulted to help identify potential routes around each town. Potential routes are discussed in detail with landowners before plans for a path network are finalised.

Where can I find out more information about path networks?

Leaflets about the path networks are available from Council Libraries and ACCESS Offices in the appropriate towns. They can also be accessed via the links above.
