NATIONAL WALKING AND CYCLING NETWORK – PUBLIC AND BUSINESS SURVEYS

The National Walking and Cycling Network (NWCN) is a network of walking and cycling paths and routes throughout Scotland which provides opportunities for people to make local journeys or to travel further afield.  The network is made up of Scotland’s Great Trails, Scottish Canal tow paths and the National Cycle Network.

Over the next few years, Scottish Natural Heritage, in partnership with Sustrans, Scottish Canals and others will be working to develop and improve the National Walking and Cycling Network and we’re keen to find out how it’s being used at the moment, what people think of it and what benefits it provides.

Please tell us what you think by clicking on the link below and completing our survey.  It should only take a few minutes of your time and your feedback will be valuable in helping us plan the future development of the network. All responses to the survey will be entered into a draw for a £50 or £25 shopping voucher.

Thank you!
