Established in 1845, ScotWays is the UK's oldest outdoor access group. We work to protect and develop access to the Scottish countryside for all and are home to the Heritage Paths Project.

The Heritage Paths Project aims to identify, research and record Scotland’s old paths and roads. We’ve already discovered hundreds of old ways from Roman Roads to Pilgrim Paths. Find out more here.
