Easy 5 miles / 8.1 km
A morning walk alongside two of the waterways of Glasgow’s West End, the Forth and Clyde Canal and the River Kelvin.
From Anniesland station, the walk leads to the canal at lock 27. Following the canal eastward, the route joins the Kelvin Walkway after crossing the Kelvin aqueduct. From here to Dumbarton Road, the River Kelvin is spanned by 18 bridges, of varied construction and grandeur, and the route passes over and under many of these. There is the possibility of a visit to Botanic Gardens two thirds of the way round, and after the last bridge at Dumbarton Road, the walk will finish at Partick station.
Distance is 5 miles, on paths, canal towpath, and pavement, with no significant gradients.
