The Seven Lochs Trail turns from the A752 into Drumpellier Country Park. The signs here make no mention of the Seven Lochs Trail. There is a dropped kerb here, but it is partly blocked by a mangled railing installed across it.

The entrance to Palacerigg Country Park, where Cumbernauld's cycle route 1 starts. There are no signs for the Cumbernauld cycle network within the park, although there is a map (see #102067).

Directions along the route from Strathclyde Business Park we are then told is a 'No Through Road' in #99868.

I'm not sure what the best way to Uddingston from here would be, but the path on the left leads as far as Strathclyde Business Park. You'd have to find your own way from there. If you were approaching from this direction, you'd have been ... [more]

The farm access road alongside the new M8 motorway continues as a single track road.

A sign for the footbridge over the M8 motorway and A8 dual carriageway to the Showcase Cinema and Kirkwood.

Route 4 from Craiglinn joins the path to the B8048. I don't know which kerb I prefer to bump!

The Corduroy Heritage Path goes through the Croy station car park. More information at

Route signs outside Croy station. Not facing those exiting the station via either exit. 'Town Centre' refers to Cumbernauld.


An 'End of Route' sign when the route clearly continues along New Craig Road. The route from here northwards uses the correct flat-topped tactiles and not the corduroy ones used across the junction southwards.

I guess combined with the cycle route sign the "Rejoin Carriageway" sign could be interpreted as the more usual "Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway".

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.

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign on the shared use footway at Calderwood Village development.

I never noticed on my last visit that Route 1 goes straight on here (note sign in #80515 just visible at top of steps), and not via the Carbrain Gully route. The steps have a ramp around them to the side.

Route 1 sign in Carbrain. The steps up ahead have a ramp around the side.

Route 1 sign in Carbrain, at end of new street.

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

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

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.

The northern end of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network's route 1 at Auchinstarry.

The path reaches the Forth & Clyde Canal, and turns towards Auchinstarry.

So if you are following the cycle route to Auchinstarry, you need to ignore this sign for Auchinstarry, since it is for walkers only.

The route of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network's route 1 through Croy is on-road, but goes off-road to get to Auchinstarry, crossing the Antonine Wall.

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

Routes 1 and 3 continue together through the Cumbernauld town centre car parks.

Once over the Linkbridge, the cycle route goes through a lobby. You need to slow right down for the automatic doors.

Route sign for routes 1 and 3. Route crosses road at the crossing on the left, then goes around the end of the car park to the right before going back across to the left to join the path down the hill behind the lamppost next to the crossin ... [more]

Cumbernauld's cycle route 1 uses the bypass ramp to get around the steps to the underpass beneath North Carbrain Road.

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 1 takes the path from the industrial estate towards the railway station.

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

Route 2 in Kildrum.

Route 2 in Kildrum.

Route 2 in Kildrum.

The junction of routes 2 and 3a.

Route 2 passes beneath Lye Brae sliproad, then over the main carriageway.

Route 2 goes down ramp from Asda car park and across the goods entrance. There are chicane barriers across the next section of path, visible on the far side of the crossing.

Route 2 continues past the town centre.

Having negotiated the edge of the Tesco car park, route 2 heads through the pedestrian plaza.

Steep slope out of underpass beneath Greenfaulds Road.

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.

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.

It doesn't say, but this seems like a good location to transfer onto the carriageway.

Another route sign for Cumbernauld's cycle route 2, plus some barriers where the path crosses the access road to a small car park.

Route sign for Cumbernauld's cycle route 2 in Condorrat. The next section of path is right in front of some houses.

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

The path parallel to North Road is part of Cumbernauld cycle route 4. No priority at side road crossing.

The path alongside North Road has been designated part of Cumbernauld cycle route 4.

Route sign with destinations. No indication as to whether cycle route is on road or footway. No shared-use signs.

A route sign for Cumbernauld's 4a cycle route.

Signage for Cumbernauld's cycle route 1, and walking information for the town centre.

The junction of Cumbernauld's 2 and 1c cycle routes.

Route signs for Cumbernauld cycle routes 2, 2a and 2c.

Route signs for Cumbernauld cycle routes 2, 2a and 2c, but no mention of the right fork.

Route sign for Cumbernauld's cycle route 2.

Croy 1 mile, Rome 1555 miles. A sign in Cumbernauld Community Park.

Route sign at Calderbank

Path from Chapelhall. The path is actually surfaced around the end of the barrier!

Path junction at bridge over North Calder Water

Unusual route sign pointing the way to NCN 75

I had lost the route but rejoined it here, where both sign patches are facing away from approaching cyclists on old route of NCN 75

Minimalist route signage on Buchanan Street, Coatbridge, outside entrance to The Time Capsule leisure centre, just where cycling should be very visibly promoted!

Junction of Monkland Canal towpath (NCN 75) and path to Drumpellier Country Park, with green signs

Point where NCN 75 joins Monkland Canal

Junction of path from Monkland Canal and Drumpellier Lawns estate roads

New signage for rerouted NCN 75 at Bargeddie
