Oatridge College National Path Demonstration Site
02 July 2012
The college grounds have a number of paths which have been upgraded to demonstrate a variety of traditional and new path surfaces and construction techniques. Bridges, seats, perches and signs have been installed to show many of the options and materials available. A gate demonstration area adjacent to the Scottish National Equestrian Centre displays a number of different gates and access controls for people to ‘come-and-try’.
An introductory booklet explaining the many features of interest along the path are available from the college’s main reception. Alternatively, the booklet can be downloaded from Paths for All’s website here National Path Demonstration Sites. The website also provides wide range of information to help communities and land managers with the development and management of paths in their local areas.
The national path demonstration site was developed by Paths for All with support from Oatridge College, and funded by Scottish Natural Heritage and West Lothian Council.
