Kelvin Walkway: Glasgow to Milngavie

The Kelvin Walkway extends the West Highland Way south to the centre of Glasgow, from Milngavie to Glasgow Heliport on the north bank of the River Clyde, where it can be linked to the longer Clyde Walkway that continues south from the city. The route follows, as much as possible, the three rivers of the Allander, Kelvin and Clyde, to form a 'green link' from the bustling city to the countryside.

Terrain

Metalled footpaths and pavements until Maryhill, and narrow, muddy single-track from there to Milngavie. Several flights of steps, some with handrails. Numerous stiles and gates in the countryside section.

Public Transport

Regular buses to the Riverside Museum from central Glasgow. Nearest rail station is Partick.
