View of Forth & Clyde canal near Kilsyth.
The Forth and Clyde Canal enables boats to move between the Firth of Forth ( near Edinburgh) and the Firth of Clyde (Glasgow). The canal passes large, vibrant towns, busy thoroughfares and into peaceful country locations


Auchinstarry-A fine, south facing dolerite/quartz quarry with a pond, picnic area and a car-park. Stone from this quarry was used to build Glasgow during the 19th. century. Now used for climbing and picnics

Overall, a good day, walking about 10km/6 miles. About 20 in all. Started at Kilsyth and finished at Kirkintilloch. Lots of history ( iron age fort, Roman Wall and fort, 19th century canal). A few showers but weather favourable.
