Even in a landscape with an abundance of footpaths bridleways and byways a lot of paths are hidden from the public eye The situation in Scotland is a bit different Public rights of way are not marked and identified as such on Ordnance Survey maps There is no definitive map in Scotland unlike England and Wales and rights of way can be lost through a non use for 20 years or In The Hidden Ways Scottish historian Alistair Moffat unveils ten forgotten roads about half situated south of the Antonine Wall The Scottish Borders are Moffat s ancestors territoryEach hidden or forgotten way is neatly embedded in its history which is interesting Moffat is not really a rambler but het has a good eye for the road and the landscape often referring to marks on the old Ordnance Survey Pathfinder series He clearly prefers these one and not the recent Explorer maps Sometimes I have the impression Alistair Moffat is in a hurry willing to end the trip as planned and not spend an extra day along his interesting selection of hidden waysThe Hidden Ways supposed to be also be a project but the website gives just an overview of his book and a nice video preview on his walk on the old Roman Dere StreetI am looking forward reading his book on Lindisfarne the island of tides
