Core Path Plan

Find out about East Renfrewshire's Core Paths Plan.

East Renfrewshire's Core Paths Plan identifies a network of paths that connect communities and give everyone the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors.

The Core Paths Plan is a 146 km (91 mile) network of established routes. The plans also show a further 7 km (4.5 miles) of aspirational routes. 

There are 83 established core paths. Most routes start and finish near where people live. The majority of the network (90%) utilises well established paths including rights of way, minor public roads and cycle lanes.

The Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 establishes a statutory right of non-motorised access to most land and water in Scotland. The Act allows for walking, cycling, horse-riding and all other forms of non-motorised access, provided these rights are exercised responsibly.
