Route notes

The route is shared with walkers of the West Highland Way and some stretches are narrow. Be polite and courteous to walkers as it is predominantly a walking route and many on it are tourists.

There's a lot of gates along the old railway line which require you to dismount.

The decent into Blane Valley is initially very steep and it may be easier to hike-bike down slightly.


Free parking is available at Milngavie train station.
