The presumed shared-use footway alongside the road up to Palacerigg Country Park doesn't have a dropped kerb opposite Tannoch Road, making it difficult to join from the side road.

Why is the route sign so far away from the junction?

According to my map from the council, Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 turns the corner here, which may account for the difference in path widths. But no signs.

A route sign pointing in an ambiguous direction, and no clue as to how one should rejoin the carriageway. All of the crossings are for pedestrians only. The shared-use footway does continue around the corner to the left into Kirkshaws Road.

Town Centre or Carlisle? I'd have thought Airdrie would have been a more relevant potential destination than Carlisle.

A path junction in the Greenfaulds area of Cumbernauld.

Cycle lanes on Greenfaulds Road, and the typical junction layout in many parts of Cumbernauld.

No option for taking a shortcut down the embankment. Pedestrians have to walk this unnecessary distance too!

If the route to Bellshill and Coatbridge is so important, why does the shared-use footway alongside the A725 basically peter out at the top of Bogs Brae?

A narrow path links the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to the end of the road to Banton at Kelvinhead, but has a couple of opening gates across it.

The Lye Brae footbridge looking towards Carbrain. The path alongside the houses continues right through Carbrain to meet the Cumbernauld Cycle Route 1, and is quite useable on a bike.

The Lye Brae footbridge, looking towards Kildrum. This could easily be part of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network.

Looking from the Vault Glen bridge towards Kildrum. The bridge is double width.

Having joined Larch Road at #80303, already time to leave it.

No sign at top of ramp from underpass, where route 3 takes a sharp turn to find a step-free route through the houses.

No sign where the Cumbernauld Cycle Network's route 3 turns right, but instead a gate to guide you the right way.

Completely random signs at path junction. The path to the left goes to Wardpark Industrial Estate, not the town centre or Ravenswood, and is not part of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network. The path forking right does lead to Abronhill, but is ro ... [more]

Confusing signage at path junction. Does 'fork left' mean take the path to the left, or go straight across the junction? (It's the latter). Photo #80234 shows a close up view of the sign in the background.

A vandalised cycle route sign attached to a pedestrian waymarker post. There also isn't a right turn at this T-junction, so the waymarker post must be facing the wrong way. See also #80231.

A vandalised cycle route sign attached to a pedestrian waymarker post, at a sharp turn. See also #80232.

Triangular junction with minimal but clear signage, assuming you know where the routes go to.

Is route 1a on the footway here? If so, dropped kerbs are needed for crossing Kings Drive (and pedestrians quite like them too).

Lots of signs at this junction in Dullatur, of which the cycle route signs are the least conspicuous. This road is very much a through route for cycling. The junction of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network's routes 1a and 5.

A couple of urban bollards looking out of place at this woodland path junction.

The route to Dullatur leaves the path alongside the railway line.

A route sign for Cumbernauld's cycle route 1f nearing Dalshannon.

Barriers block the start of the path on the far side of Airdrie Road from Myvot Avenue, despite this being signed as part of the 1f cycle route.

Route signs that have been twisted around so they are not facing on-coming users. Routes 1 and 1b part company here.

A route sign for cycle route 1. No mention of routes 1a or 1b that we saw back at #70711. Have we missed the turnoff?

Welcome to Cumbernauld! Some of the route signs have been twisted round a bit, so it is not obvious which route they point to at the crossroads of paths. Routes 1a and 1b are signed from here, but do not reappear on the signs until they bra ... [more]

Sign for cycle route 1 at the new bridge over the railway. The path on the right goes to one of the platforms at Cumbernauld Station.

Route signs for route 1 up the hill to Palacerigg Country Park.

The route sign for the turn into Kelvin Road North is positioned on the far side of the triangular junction, so cannot be seen properly until it is too late to turn. It also says Cumbernauld Station is 1 3/4 miles away, when it is nearer 1/ ... [more]

Route 2 in Kildrum.

Route 2 in Kildrum.

The junction of routes 2 and 3a.

Route 2 forks left here, not right.

Route signs all pointing 90 degrees away from the correct direction for each.

Damaged route sign pointing slightly downwards in Cumbernauld town centre. [In this photo https://flic.kr/p/oUftnt the signs point in different directions.]

Sign says route 2 forks right here. Now possibly it means cross the footbridge and back through the underpass in #70416, but forking left leads there directly.

This seems to be the junction between Cumbernauld's cycle routes 2 and 3. Destinations for route 3, but not for route 2, and double-sided signs for both at T-junction.

By 'fork left' do they mean turn left and cross under the dual carriageway only to cross back at #70418, or go straight ahead?

The junction signs for Cumbernauld's cycle routes 2 and 1e, with 1e seen going straight ahead.

The junction of Cumbernauld's cycle routes 2 and 1e, and these signs do have destinations. The sign for the turn where route 2 goes across the A73 footbridge can be seen in the distance.

Route sign for Cumbernauld's cycle route 2 on the Condorrat Ring Road.

Route signs on the far side of the junction, not really visible on the approach when turning decision needs to be made on a main road. The sign for route 4 is only visible for someone coming from the Condorrat Ring Road, not from Mollins ... [more]

Spot the route sign for Cumbernauld cycle route 2. This section of route is on-road, unlike most of the Cumbernauld cycle network, and on a 40mph road at that!

The reverse of #70290, in the centre of the Craiglinn Interchange roundabout.

A total mess! It appears that all 6 signs for this triangular junction at Craiglinn Interchange have been put on the one pole, at one corner of the junction, and the signs have been twisted around to point in random directions. (Reverse see ... [more]

Some signs twisted around pole (square poles could have been used to prevent this). Destinations could aid users in deciding between route numbers on a network which has pretty minimal publicity besides the signs themselves.

A flight of steps that could be replaced by a ramp on triangular path junction. Funded by the National Lottery apparently.

The cycle lane turns left. You MUST Park and Ride!

A nice smooth curve in the junction at the end of the footbridge, but no signs for cycle route 2. [It goes straight ahead, to #70616.]

Right turn on old route of NCN 75
