Medal Routes volunteering opportunities

Our Medal Routes project is about using local knowledge to create routes for local people on local paths. We now have over 600 walking routes across Scotland but aim to have 720 routes by December 2016. To do this, we need your help!

Get involved

Do you know a route that would make a perfect Medal Route walk? Do you have an establishment in mind that would be a great start/finish location for our walks? Do you want to encourage more people in your area to walk more often? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we want to hear from you today.

Volunteering with Medal Routes is easy and fun. You can spend as little or as much time volunteering for the project as you wish as at Medal Routes HQ, we are grateful for any support we can receive. So far we have over 300 Volunteer Ambassadors happily working on the project. If you’d like to volunteer, you’ll be supported at all times by our Project Officer, Rob Burns.

This project aims to encourage more people to be more active outdoors in their local communities through walking Medal Routes. These are short circular walks of approximately 15, 30 and 60 minutes long, starting and finishing at a Walking Hub such as a library, a café or a school.
