How to Use this Page. #
These are not guidebooks about which path to follow or what hills to climb, these are books that cover the management and development of outdoor access.
Publications are grouped by subject area and then by decade.
Each entry follows the same layout and is organised thus:
Author, (Year of publication), Title, Publisher, followed by a paragraph about the book. This may be the advertising paragraph from the book cover or a short review.
Where possible a weblink is included, but some of the publications are not available online so you will need to use your favourite bookseller to get a copy. Some are no longer in print so you may need to go to a real bricks and mortar library to find a copy.
Paths for All (2016) Outdoor Access Design Guide. Path for All ISBN: NONE #
This is the first revision of the Countryside Access Design Guide, which was published in 2002. The Guide has been updated and renamed to take account of Part 1 of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003, as well as the Equality Act 2010, British Standards and good practice.
The Guide aims to provide consistent and clear advice on the selection and design of outdoor access furniture and structures, such as gates, fences and boardwalks. It is aimed at land managers, access professionals, rangers, planners, surveyors, and community and interest groups involved in the development and management of outdoor access in Scotland. Weblink.
