Signs (advisory and directional)

PDF Print

advisory sign

Advisory signs are provided to let people know what to expect when using paths, to provide information about responsible access and to let people know of land management practices taking place on, or near a path.

directional sign

Directional signs such as finger posts, way markers or orientation panels are used to help people find their way to a given destination or route.

For general guidance about signage and specification details for various directional finger posts, way markers and orientation panel frames, refer to ‘Signage Guidance for Outdoor Access’ (Paths for All, Scottish Natural Heritage).
