Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Core Paths Plan?

The Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 establishes statutory Access Rights over much of Scotland's land. However it is recognised that most people who are looking for Countryside Access will want to use recognised paths. To provide for this Angus Council was required to prepare a Core Paths Plan for the council area (but excluding the area of the Cairngorms National Park). The plan identifies a basic framework of paths throughout the council area. The Core Paths Plan was adopted by the Council on 23 November 2010.

For more information, please visit the Core Paths Plan page of the council website.
