Adopt a Path allows those most passionate about Scotland’s mountains to become custodians of their favourite hill paths, conserving fragile upland landscapes by reporting on erosion damage or potential path issues and allowing maintenance tasks to be targeted to best effect. Adopt a Path volunteers will receive training and support to undertake their surveys in a safe manner which provides the type of information we require to ensure these iconic paths are maintained for generations to come.
We will be running an Adopt a Path training day in May for new Adopt a Path volunteers in Arrochar in the Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park. There will be both indoor and outdoor elements to the day and we will be walking on the lower sections of the Cobbler. The training day will cover:
- overview of the scheme and what is involved
- basic mountain awareness
- identifying common path problems
- how to use our online reporting system
More information about the Adopt a Path Scheme can be found our website here.
