The first section of the West Highland Way is something of a prelude through the landscapes of the Lowlands. The urban landscape is left behind at Milngavie as the route passes lochs and woodland before dropping into Strathblane in the shadow of the Campsie Fells. Many walkers extend this stage by continuing as far as Balmaha.
Mostly tracks and country lanes, with section on disused railway line. Can be very muddy in places.
Milngavie is served by buses and trains from Glasgow; Drymen is served by bus.
Milngavie town centre.
