It’s Up To Us

It’s Up to Us is a campaign by Mountaineering Scotland and Outdoor Access Trust for Scotland to highlight the desperate need for long-term public funding for upland path projects.As hill-goers, we are fortunate to have the free right of access to all the incredible mountains and hills Scotland offers.


But how often do we stop to think about our physical impact on the mountain landscapes we love. With more people than ever getting out to enjoy Scotland’s mountains, along with the effects of extreme weather and climate change, upland paths are deteriorating fast. And with no public funding available for upland path restoration and maintenance, it's up to us, the hillwalkers, mountaineers, outdoor enthusiasts, businesses and organisations who care about Scotland’s hills to give back to the mountains we all enjoy.


Cotswold Outdoor are proud to be the main sponsor of Mountaineering Scotland and the Outdoor Access Trust For Scotland’s It’s Up To Us campaign, providing funds to support vital mountain footpath repair. 


Jose Finch, our Managing Director at Cotswold Outdoor, said: “At Cotswold Outdoor, we believe everyone's happier outside, which is why protecting the great outdoors we love to explore is so important. For that reason, we're proud to support Mountaineering Scotland and the Outdoor Access Trust for Scotland’s new It's Up to Us campaign, providing funds to support vital mountain footpath repair across Scotland's incredible landscapes and mountains so we can enjoy them for years to come.”

How can you get involved?

Help us raise £300,000 to fund the repair of the badly eroded path on An Teallach, one of the most iconic mountains in Scotland and a prime example of a popular mountain path on privately owned land where no other funding is currently available.
