In this section of the website you can find information about a recent project to improve and develop our local walks. This project was initiated by the Community Council and took over 3 years to plan and execute. This project was funded by Awards for All and West Lothian LEADER, with assistance from Paths for All and with the kind co-operation of the landowners.

Below on the left you can use the links to see the results of our first photographic survey (carried out in 2008). Following that initial survey a further detailed survey was carried out (2009) to create a firm schedule of works to establish funding requirements and allow contractors to quote for the work required.

On the right there's a selection of links to view project information and pictures.

View the Paths as at May 2008.
