Stuart West, on behalf of OIC  said:

“We’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to the review of core paths in Orkney over the latter part of last year. Based on that feedback, we’ve revised the plan to include more circular walking routes, and rationalising the network’s lower quality paths so that finite resources can be focussed to provide most benefit.”
