When & Where

This summer, we've invited families to explore Scotland's fantastic path network using our ideas, tips and expert insights about how to get children exploring walkways while having fun.
Our Summer Path Days campaign aims to help you and your family get out and about this summer. We've looked at discovering paths, sharing journeys, why paths are important, staying safe and how to look after your favourite places.

You can explore our info, tips and activities by checking out the weekly topics below.

Week 1: Discovering Your Local Paths

In week one we looked at Discovering Your Local Paths and we gave some ideas to help you find and explore your local paths with your family. We also listed some fun activities to help you share your journey with others and you showed us your favourite local paths.

Week 2: Why are paths important to you?

We explored all the benefits that having paths close to our homes give us. There's lots of info & activities on our Why are paths important to you? page.

Week 3: What are your access rights?

With beaches, hills, forests, moors and riversides to explore, we are lucky in Scotland to be able go almost anywhere for walks provided we are responsible. Read more about last week's topic - access and how to be wise outside!

Week 4: Maintaining Paths

In week 4, we talked about looking after your family's favourite places. From simple tasks like snipping an overhanging branch to reporting a problem to the right person - there's lots to do and learn on our Maintaining Paths page to take care of your favourite place.

Our prize draws have closed for the Summer Path Days Campaign. If you'd like to take part next time, sign up to our eNews to hear more.
