This is a linear walk from East Dunbartonshire to West Dunbartonshire. Starting from Milngavie, we will follow the Allander Water, crossing at Staney Brig. We will walk through Milngavie Golf Course via its main driveway, then use a minor road and paths to reach Craigton. From there we will take a signposted route across farmland and open moor to Faifley. Pleasant walking through Faifley Knowes will bring us out at Hardgate Roundabout. We will enter Goldenhill Park, where there was once a Roman fort, and pass through Duntocher VIllage Green (created in 2007 on the site of a former scrapyard). After using a footbridge to cross the A82, we will be protected by high hedges as our route passes through Dalmuir Golf Course. Finally, we will visit Dalmuir Park, arriving at Dalmuir Station to catch a train back to Westerton or Glasgow Central.
Meet the leader at Central Station: outside M&S Simply Food at 9:20 am for the 9:39 am Milngavie train. Purchase a single ticket to Milngavie, as return will be from Dalmuir. Car drivers are recommended to park at Westerton, taking the train at 9:54 from there to Milngavie.
