Overview

Circular walk starting at Milngavie Railway Station.

We go up and round the Reservoir and then wind our way through the estate to Mugdock Visitors Centre where we will stop for lunch.

You can sit outside if you have brought a packed lunch or use the cafe for soup etc.

On our return journey we pass the castle ruins and then descend down the West Highland Way trail returning to Milngavie Town centre where there are plenty of coffee shops.
