Strathblane to Croy

This stage of the John Muir Way starts with a 12.5km tarmac cycle path stretch to Kirkintilloch with great views of the Campsie Fells, before a section of canal towpath to Twechar from where the route follows the line of the Roman Antonine Wall climbing to a couple of hill forts with great views to finish near Croy which has a station. Kilsyth is a 1.5km detour where there are all services, or Auchinstarry marina has a hotel and restaurant slightly nearer. Along the way food can be found in Lennoxtown, Milton of Campsie and Kirkintilloch.


Surfaced shared cycle path to Kirkintilloch, then canal tow path, can be muddy in places.
