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.


Metalled footpaths and pavements until Maryhill, and narrow, muddy single-track from there to Milngavie, some parts overgrown in summer. Numerous gates and stiles - some in a poor state of repair - in the countryside section.

Public Transport
