The second stage of the John Muir Way is a long one, starting with a stroll through idyllic Balloch Castle Country Park. A long section of walking on tarmac follows, as the route follows quiet country lanes through the gently undulating farmland south of Loch Lomond. Later the way heads through forestry and past reservoirs as it leads through the northern fringes of the Kilpatrick Hills, continuing in the shadow of the Campsie Fells to reach Strathblane.


Minor roads at first, then good paths throughout.
