We coordinated two schemes for volunteers to help manage paths across the Cairngorms National Park area. The schemes were run via the website OutdoorCairngorms.co.uk

Outdoor Access

We undertook primary research for Scottish Natural Heritage on how to describe paths in a coherent manner. This involved engaging with users and potential users and assessing how to present path information to improve path promotion in Scotland. The research has led to the development of a new path grading system that is now being adopted in Scotland.
