As a good stretch of several miles is on slightly rough paths its not suitable for narrow tired racing bikes but OK for everything else. The route starts at Giffnock Railway station and proceeds to Pollock Park along a quiet cycle path opposite the park and over the squinty bridge via Kelvingrove , up Byers Road and out of Glasgow along Maryhill Road to Milngavie and on to the West Highland way which begins there it turns off the west highland way inside a forest and heads towards Aberfoyle, where there are lots of Cafes and trendy shops to browse. You can turn right towards the Trossachs or turn back onto the A81 and follow it to Callander where ther are more cafes etc to rest and relax in.
