Many Ramblers groups and individual volunteers have been involved in activities to improve their local path network. Ramblers Scotland can support much of this activity, providing guidance and advice or connecting groups with others who have carried out similar work so they can pass on the benefit of their own experiences. Remember also that keeping paths free from obstruction is important and many Ramblers volunteers are involved in ensuring that access is not restricted.

We have lots of advice available for volunteers under path maintenance in the document hub in our Assemble website:
