Welcome

East Side FarmWelcome to the Heritage Paths Project website. Heritage paths are old routes that have been used for a specific purpose, examples include:

  •  Roman roads
  •  Drove roads
  •  Pilgrimage routes
  •  Miners’ paths  
  •  Trading paths
  •  Military roads
  •  Turnpike roads
  •  Shieling paths 

There are many more types of path out there - a heritage path that you know of could have an entirely unique history and could be in a group of its own.

Getting Involved

Tell us about the heritage paths in Scotland that you know.  We'd love to receive more route surveys, and please do inform us if you notice changes to paths on this website. Perhaps you have images of paths or features along paths that you'd be happy for us to use. Best of all, simply walk a heritage path and enjoy yourself.

Stone Wall

ScotWays provides most of the Heritage Paths project's funding, along with help from Scottish Natural Heritage. Why not support the Heritage Paths project by becoming a member of ScotWays? More information on membership and other ways to support us can be found at www.scotways.com.


Mapping

The maps used on this website were kindly designed and donated by the National Library of Scotland's Map Library.  They are made up of a Google Maps street map overlaid with 1930s mapping by Bartholomew and Ordnance Survey.  For more detail, zoom in until you are able to see the path, in purple, on a 1 inch to the mile scale Ordnance Survey map.   If you would like to see the path on a background of satellite images then click the 'satellite' button on the top right corner. If you would like to see the path without the historic map then move the slider in the corner to the left and it will disappear.  If you are unable to view the paths, it may be because you have Internet Explorer 6 - upgrades to Internet Explorer 7 or 8 are free.
