A public right of way is a road or path (a route) which can be used by any member of the public as a matter of right.
In order to become a right of way under the common law, a route must:-
Clackmannanshire Council has a duty to assert and keep free from encroachment any public right of way within its area. The Council also has the power to repair and maintain any public right of way, however; this does not relieve any other authority or person of their liability.
All public rights of way will continue to exist and are unaffected by the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003.
