This £1.5 million fund is for the improvement of path networks to increase walking, wheeling and cycling, for a happier, healthier, greener Scotland. 

The new grant fund is supported by Transport Scotland to improve paths to make active travel easier and more attractive. This will encourage people to leave their cars at home for short journeys and benefit air quality, reduce CO2 emissions and improve our physical health and mental wellbeing.

The fund is named in memory of the late Paths for All  Chief Officer, Ian Findlay CBE who died very suddenly in March 2021.

What type of projects will be funded?

  • Improve accessibility and resilience of existing paths between homes, community facilities, active travel routes and public transport facilities.
  • Remove barriers to make existing paths more accessible to more people.
  • Link paths to community destinations such as homes and public transport connections.
  • Improve and create routes to aid the development of 20-minute neighbourhoods.
