Something tells me that this is the council boundary.

The path from the end of Annan Drive leading to Drumchapel starts off wide, but gets narrower.

The pond now forms part of the Colquhoun Park Flood Alleviation Scheme, and is more like a nature reserve.

The path from Conon Avenue to the Colquhoun Park pavilion. It is possible to access Station Road from the car park to the right.

Bollards in the path on the approach to the connection to Courthill.

A connecting path across to Edgehill Road.

Nearing the top of the hill, and the end of the upgraded section of path. A couple of bollards have been placed in the path next to a path junction.

The section of the path from Stockiemuir Avenue to Drymen Road that has been upgraded. The gradient increase can be seen in the background.

The path to Drymen Road diverges from the Ski Club access.

A sign for the upgraded core path that runs from here at the entrance to the Bearsden Ski Club over a hill to Drymen Road near Schaw House. It is signed for walking only since it goes over quite a steep hill. The northern half of the path h ... [more]

In common with other signs on this route (see #111996), the eastbound sign at the entrance to Heather Park is for walking and cycling, but the westbound sign is for walking only. However, in this case the remainder of the route to Baljaffra ... [more]

The path from Heather Park to the Craigdhu Wedge and Allander Centre is signposted as a walking and cycling route, even though the first section of path is narrow and muddy (see #111998). The path from the Craigdhu Wedge is signposted as ju ... [more]

The path from Heather Park and Heather Avenue crosses an unusual bridge across a stream to reach the path (to the right) to the Craigdhu Wedge and Allander Centre. A path to Craigdhu Road goes straight ahead over the hill, but didn't look l ... [more]

The path from the Craigdhu Wedge crosses an unusual bridge over a stream to get to Heather Avenue and Heather Park. The path to the right is signposted as a walking route to Craigdhu Road, but see #112000.

The narrow and unsurfaced path from Heather Park towards the Craigdhu Wedge is not particularly suitable for cycling, although it is popular with dog walkers.

Signs at the Craigdhu Wedge. Right for walking and cycling to the Allander Centre, left for walking to Stockiemuir Road. Walking times are given.

Two generations of cycle parking at Westerton station, the shelter being under CCTV coverage.

The Wester Way ends at Westerhill Road and awaits the building of the next phase of the Bishopbriggs Relief Road, and a new path alongside the railway to Lenzie. Corduroy tactiles have been provided (not cycleway tactiles) even though th ... [more]

A sign for the Wester Way alongside Wester Cleddens Road. There aren't any of these signs on the path further south, even though there is now a continuous path from Auchinairn Road to Westerhill Business Park. Some connecting paths have ... [more]

Although the Wester Way has already been launched, the toucan crossing across Wester Cleddans Road has still to be commissioned.

The path on the opposite side of the canal from NCN754 isn't surfaced, but continues through from Bishopbriggs to Cadder. Nice for a change, but a bit muddy.

A gate across the lane leading to the narrow Thomas Muir Trail path. Passing this is easier than negotiating the path ahead.

The path on the left is useful for getting to the ASDA superstore.

Humped road crossing for path on way to new park, but demolished bollard and footway parking in housing development that has been designed for car commuters.

New cycle path into housing development from toucan crossing on Auchinairn Road. But that barrier could do with removing.

Wide footway set back from Auchinairn Road, and toucan crossing across to the large new housing development. Those corners could do with rounding off, but perhaps this is intended for cycling.

End of the wide footway alongside Auchinairn Road, within sight of the Standburn Road junction.

Some dropped kerbs have been installed on Milngavie Road and at the turn from Macfarlane Road into Kessington Drive, restoring the connection possible before the pedestrian crossing was moved. See also #85484. However, southbound it is a ... [more]

Some dropped kerbs have been installed at the turn from Macfarlane Road into Kessington Drive and on Milngavie Road, restoring the connection possible before the pedestrian crossing was moved. See also #85485.

The start of the new link from Macfarlane Road into Killermont Road, as part of the interim Bears Way route. There way previously a bus layby here, even though this is not a bus terminus or somewhere a bus would be waiting for more than the ... [more]

The end of the new link from Killermont Road into Macfarlane Road, as part of the interim Bears Way route. There way previously a bus layby here, even though this is not a bus terminus or somewhere a bus would be waiting for more than the t ... [more]

A short section of shared-use footway forms the new connection from Macfarlane Road to Killermont Road, as part of the interim Bears Way route. See also #85480.

The new cycle connection between Killermont Road and Macfarlane Road, on the interim Bears Way route. See also #85481.

The turn from Cluny Park into Cluny Drive, on the Bears Way interim route, with a "Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" sign.

The end of the Bears Way interim route through Cluny Park, at a new toucan crossing across the A81 Maryhill Road dual carriageway. A shared-use footway connects to the entrance to Garscube Estate just off to the left, and continues as far a ... [more]

The shared-use footway alongside Maryhill Road ends at this new toucan crossing, from where the interim Bears Way route continues through Cluny Park. A "Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" sign has been provided just beyond the crossing, so footwa ... [more]

Shared-use footway on Maryhill Road at the entrance to the Garscube Estate. A gap has been left in the central reservation for those turning right off of the main A81 dual carriageway. See also #85470.

The start of the West Highland Way in Milngavie. Location: , Milngavie (Scotland, United Kingdom)

A basic bus stop without a shelter or much of an island between the boarding point and the cycle track.

Chicane for cyclists approaching bus stop on Bears Way cycleway. In foreground, access to/from side-road opposite.

Priority at golfing range side-road crossing on Bears Way cycleway.

A chicane approaching a bus stop on the Bears Way cycle track.

The Bears Way cycle track crosses the Allander Sports Centre access road with a (slightly) raised priority crossing.

The cycle track crosses the access road to the Allander Sports Centre by moving away from the Milngavie Road alignment to cross further back from the road junction (see #72183).

A toucan crossing across Milngavie Road and the Bears Way cycle track. No particularly obvious reason why it is a toucan rather than a pedestrian crossing, since the footway on the left is narrow and not suitable for cycling on, and the pat ... [more]

A chicane in the cycle track approaching a bus stop. The shelter for this stop is on the footway rather than the bus stop island. This intending passenger seems happy to wait leaning against a bollard.

Temporary arrangements at what will become the entrance to a new housing estate.

Cycle parking stands provided at Kessington shops.

Despite a busy car park, a full programme of sporting activities, and an Active Travel Strategy consultation drop-in, the cycle parking at the Allander Leisure Centre is empty! One other bike had arrived by the time I left.

Some Commonwealth Games cycle parking has made its way to the Allander Leisure Centre.

The shared-use path from the Allander Leisure Centre to the A81, with a random cobbled part. No dropped kerb at the end. If a bridge under the railway line was provided, this path would connect the Craigdhu Wedge path to the Allander Wal ... [more]

The shared-use path from the Allander Leisure Centre meets the Bears Way cycle track at the toucan crossing across the A81, and across from the Craigdhu Wedge path.

The path down the side of the fitness club is the inauspicious start of the Craigdhu Wedge path. Access is from the shared-use footway in the foreground and segregated track to the right, or from the toucan crossing just to the left of the ... [more]

The Bears Way cycle track crosses from one side of the A81 to the other on the boundary between Bearsden and Milngavie (both East Dunbartonshire Council). The crossing also provides access between the Craigdhu Wedge path and the path to the ... [more]

The Bears Way cycle track crosses from one side of the A81 to the other, one of the main reasons for not using it cited by people who continue to cycle on the main carriageway. I'm guessing the traffic signal poles are still to be reloca ... [more]

The cycletrack gets narrower at the car parking layby, presumably to offer protection from the door-zone. But it just juts out without any transition.

The end of the Bears Way segregated cycleway and back onto the road at the Burnbrae Roundabout. Not so clear how to make this transition southbound.

A strange coloured strip (see also #70938) in the door-zone of a car parking layby.

A strange coloured strip that ends abruptly at the build-out for the toucan crossing, then the red cycle lane starts beyond.

A continuous footway and a painted cycle lane on Main Street, but in poor condition.

Some additional cycle parking has been provided in Stewart Street, Milngavie. Compare with #34558.

Cycle parking in Douglas Street, Milngavie.

The start of the West Highland Way in Milngavie. Compare this to the start of the Allander Way across the road #70914.

The start of the Allander (Walk)Way in Milngavie, and some bike stands near the tourist information office.

Money has been spent on replacing mundane signs like "No Parking Beyond This Point" with really posh embossed ones. It isn't even facing the right way! The town centre is straight ahead.

Not the smartest designed or prettiest piece of pathway on the Allander Walkway under the Tesco access bridge.

Cycle parking at Tesco supermarket in Milngavie. A bit hidden away in a corner.

Routes from outside Tesco, including the Allander Walkway (not Allander Way shown on other signs). The West Highland Way sign is pointing in a different direction, even though the Allander Way goes right there!

Allander Way signage - Glasgow 6 walking (cycles and wheelchairs for 1 1/4 and then what?)

Clearly there used to be a kissing gate here, where the Allander Way meets Glasgow Road. (Sign close-up at #70761.)

The section of the Allander Way firmly in East Dunbartonshire is somewhat better than the section belonging to Glasgow City Council.

Prescott Bridge on the Allander Way.

NCN 755 Strathkelvin Railway Path

NCN 755 Strathkelvin Railway Path

NCN 755 Strathkelvin Railway Path

Bridge over the Bothlin Burn on the Strathkelvin Railway Path.

A footway that diverges from the road going into Woodilee development. No indication on whether cycling is permitted on this path. Either way, lampposts are planted within the width of the path, effectively narrowing it.

Ramped shared-use footway replacing steps in #26221.

A wind and solar-powered variable message sign to warn drivers of cyclists transferring between the shared-use footway and the on-road cycle lanes at the junction ahead. I wonder what it says. Two lampposts planted in the shared-use foot ... [more]

The steps, built for the Strathkelvin Railway Path diversion due to the Kirkintilloch Initiative Road scheme, have been replaced with a ramp.

Ramp down from Industry Street, allowing access to the open space around the Luggie Water and the Strathkelvin Railway Path.

Junction in path and underpass beneath New Lairdsland Road. Either route will get the user to Industry Street from where the Strathkelvin Railway Path continues, but the route on the left is now more user friendly.

Footbridge over the Luggie Water, and the path up to the canal and town centre. The Strathkelvin Railway Path turns right at the end of the bridge.

Ramp up to bridge over Luggie Water on route of the Strathkelvin Railway Path through Kirkintilloch. Route sign does not have any destinations other than North and South.

Some new steps have appeared in the original ramp in the canal towpath up to Cowgate, so a new ramp has been constructed to bypass the steps. But there's nothing to warn of the steps on the path ahead and thus the need to divert onto the ra ... [more]

Forth and Clyde canal 7 Kilsyth NCN 754

Continuous footway over sideroad on Milngavie Road, Bearsden. See also #67974.

Biked to work today under the @NetworkRailEGIP Lenzie Railway Viaduct. Impressive stone structure despite its age. http://t.co/M7qIKWWVpG

Milngavie's reservoir

Two out of three paths resurfaced at the Craigdhu Wedge

Sign for Torrance, a short way along a riverside path.

The Thomas Muir Trail has been signed to Clachan of Campsie, just off the Strathkelvin Railway Path.

Westerton station's cycle parking

No bike parking here, so bikes locked to posts. UPDATE: Some cycle parking has been provided around the corner - see #70914.
