Outdoor Access Design Guide CoverAccessible multi-use paths and well-designed path infrastructure ensure that our outdoor places are accessible to everyone. Access to quality paths and greenspaces are vital if Scotland is to become a more active, healthier nation.

The Outdoor Access Design Guide gives consistent and clear advice on the selection and design of outdoor access furniture and structures, such as gates, fences and boardwalks. It is aimed at land managers, access professionals, rangers, planners, surveyors, and community and interest groups involved in the development and management of outdoor access in Scotland. 

The Guide is divided into six design sections. Each section includes: an overview of content; key design considerations to help you to make the most appropriate choice; and design sheets with drawings, a materials list and installation instructions.

Paths for All can offer advice and support for professionals and community groups who require additional support to design access infrastructure. For more information contact communitypaths@pathsforall.org.uk
