Unofficial Cycle Routes - Milngavie to Bishopbriggs & Kirkintilloch

Website by Andy Preece

This route starts at Milngavie, and heads uphill, before descending through the Baldernock area to Balmore, then crosses the River Kelvin to join the Forth & Clyde Canal at Cadder for the rest of the way to Kirkintilloch. The route shares much of the way with the unofficial cycle route from Strathblane. This route takes in the ford at Dougalston.
