This 10-mile route between Milngavie and Partick feels surprisingly rural from North to South, with the hustle and bustle of the city becoming more apparent the further along you go down to the Riverside Museum, where the Kelvin meets the Clyde. Expect a mixture of earth paths, pavements, cycle tracks and some mud!
We will finish the walk at the Transport Museum. Free entry to the museum and a Cafe where we can have some refreshments.Only a short walk from Partick Central railway station.
Route length is about 10.5 miles
This will be a dog-friendly walk
