Core Paths

Core Paths - Maps

Core maps keyCore Paths form the basic network of paths around East Lothian and link into and support the wider network of other paths that already exist around the county. Core paths can be the most popular paths or key routes that link communities or provide access to local sites. They may be important paths that manage public access in environmentally sensitive areas or help farmers and land managers to manage access on their land.

Core paths can be anything from a tarmac path to a grassy field margin and this variety is important to provide different experiences for users. Whilst each core path may not be suitable for all user groups, the core path system in East Lothian as a whole provides for all types of users (walkers, cyclists and horse-riders) and people of varying abilities.

On the maps linked below, Core Paths are shown as purple solid lines. The red dotted lines represent Core Paths that do not currently exist on the ground, but that will be built in the near future. The Core Paths have all been numbered to identify individual paths. You can alson visit the Walks Around East Lothian to find out more on walks.
