Point specified distance from other point

I am trying to place access points around the perimeter of parks on an OS map I downloaded, but given the large nature of the study area and limited knowledge of actual points of access, I am creating these at an average distance. For this reason, I want to find a way to place points a specific distance from the previous points (say 100m). I found tools such as intersection and direction-distance but these don't quite perform the more simplistic task I'm trying to accomplish.

 

The only thing I can think of trying is creating a buffer around each point and using the snapping tools to place new points, but this seems far too time consuming given the number of points involved.

 

Thanks.
