The National Path Demonstration Site showcases best practice in inclusive design, infrastructure and the management of shared use paths.

This unique site, located at Scotland's Rural College (SRUC) Oatridge Campus, is made up of several paths constructed using a range of different materials and construction techniques. The site aims to help path projects decide on the best materials and techniques to use for their own unique project. As well as different types of path surface, you'll also find lots of different types of gates, barriers, bridges and signs at the site to look at and try out.
