The Carse of Gowrie Group (CoGG) was formed in the mid-1990s, the main impetus being a perceived need for the area to have a stronger identity within central and local government and within Scotland's tourist industry. Over the years a number of initiatives have been pursued culminating in the formation of the Paths Sub-Group shortly after the approval of Part 1 of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act in 2003.
The CoGG Paths Project website was set up in April 2007 to:-
- record and share the plans, programmes and progress of the Carse of Gowrie Paths Project
- encourage wide participation in the project development
- facilitate exchange of information and
- promote group and individual achievements
