Clyde Walkway 2: Cambuslang to Strathclyde Country Park

The second stage of the Clyde Walkway is very varied, taking in some urban suburbs as well as more rural stretches as Glasgow is left behind. There is plenty of interest, with attractive lochs, a ruined castle and memorials as well as the great River Clyde itself, but the route is somewhat spoiled by a middle section close by very busy roads - this is completely unsigned.


Footpaths with varied surfaces; some parts can be muddy. Pavements beside busy roads.
