Core Paths Plan and Maps

Core Paths

The Orkney Core Paths Plan can be viewed via the link in the Related Downloads.

Core Path Maps

Please use the links within Related Downloads to view the Core Paths identified across the County, along with an introductory document to the maps.

Core Paths are identified by purple dashed lines and each path has a unique code. A second category of path – aspirational - is shown on some of the maps. These are paths which have been identified as important routes, but which are currently not fit for purpose or where agreements are required before they can be developed.
