175 years of Scotways
A talk telling the story of 'ScotWays' — the body with a mission to uphold public access in Scotland. The organisation was established in Edinburgh in 1845 to tackle the problem of paths being blocked in the city. ScotWays Operations Director Richard Barron gives a whistle-stop tour of the UK's oldest outdoor recreation organisation.
Learn about the events and characters involved in the development of ScotWays, and the battles to protect the public's right of access.
