Fences for paths, recreational sites or sensitive site areas such as nature reserves or historic sites can provide one or more functions by acting as a physical barrier or visual boundary. Fences can be used for guiding people as well as separating them from potential hazards.


For general guidance about fences, key design principles and specification details for various fence types, refer to the fences section of the ‘Countryside Access Design Guide’ (Scottish Natural Heritage).
