Biggar Country Path Network is based on the South Lanarkshire Core Paths framework. It is, however, hoped to extend the network to include some of the aspirational paths and also to add some important missing links. South Lanarkshire Core Paths
South Lanarkshire Council in collaboration with Scotways (The Scottish Rights of Way Society) installed signposts indicating many of these core paths. Most of these signs are still in place although a few have been removed. We plan both to replace the missing signs and to add to them.
Just because a path is on a map does not mean, however, that it exists on the ground and so the first step in establishing the Country Path Network has been to survey what is actually there. Some paths are non-existent, some obstructed, and some deep wet muddy and almost impassable.
