Walks and paths to explore
Within Perth and Kinross there are lots of signposted paths, many of which connect communities and are signed from villages or towns.
Paths Groups work to keep open and improve paths in many areas. In 2018 we published the Community Path Group Development Guide which aims to support appropriate and effective community led action for paths and contains guidance, information contact details and links to further information.
The Council has asserted over 430 miles of rights of way in Perth & Kinross. These routes link two public places and have been used regularly by the public for a period of twenty years. The Council has a duty to keep these routes open and free from obstructions.
The Core Paths Plan for Perth and Kinross was adopted by the Council in January 2012 and revised in 2017. The Plan shows a system of paths which provide reasonable public access throughout Perth and Kinross.
