You can miss out the section on Glasgow Road by going straight on from Markethill Road at the junction with Cairnmuir Road (where the main road goes right and there's a side road to the left) and onto a path. Follow the path off to the right (see aerial photos), then it becomes a farm track. Keep following it past the farm and it leads to Cathkin Road.
