New path to access south of Hairmyres hospital site from Strathtay Ave (update to #113723). Soft segregation around outhouse is quite tight but protects from parking and has gaps to join to/from road.

Paths around the north side of the Malls Mire nature reserve are less formal than those around the centre.

Bike repair station at UH Hairmyres off main entrance road (Hospital Dr). Includes a pump and repair tools. Toast rack bike parking (see 113722) has been relocated nearby. Three individual stands were removed in summer 2020 to accommodate a ... [more]

Cycle parking stands at UH Hairmyres side entrance.

The road from South Cathkin Farm joins Cathkin Road, and opposite there is a cut-through to the parallel path through the woods.

A track between Markethill Road and South Cathkin Farm, around the former quarry and landfill site. This is probably the best the track gets.

Cycle parking stands at the rear of the coffee chain drive-through.

A person on a bike leaves NCN756 on the Mavor Avenue shared footway to cross to the new retail park.

A new roundabout at Mavor Avenue/Avon Drive. It wasn't clear where the cycle route went.

The path from Logie Park splits to form a triangular junction with the East Kilbride railway path. Left for the town centre, right for towards Kingsgate.

The path to Logie Park heads to the right, but there is a desire line over the mound straight ahead to get to the railway path. See also #113803 looking from the opposite direction.

The East Kilbride railway path near Dunblane Drive (to the left) and Halfmerke Primary School (to the right).

The start of the railway path section of NCN756, leaving East Kilbride, at St Bryde Lane. The traffic calming strips present a hazard to turning cyclists and could easily be bypassed with a more convenient access onto the path to the left. ... [more]

A route sign for NCN756 in Old Mill Road, although I don't think Glasgow is just one mile further along the route than Rutherglen.

Glebe Street meets Hunter Street and Montgomery Street in East Kilbride Village. I never noticed when I took the photograph, but the cycle parking stands look like they may be removable.

Glebe Street and other back streets in East Kilbride Village.

Not a cycling route, but this footway crosses Stuart Street at an uncontrolled crossing near to the Priestknowe Roundabout, so is a bit difficult to cross at busy times. Traffic reduction through East Kilbride Village would help. The sal ... [more]

Poor quality path in a park signed as shared use.

A newly improved connection between Whitemoss Road and the Whitemoss Roundabout underpasses. But no direction signs for the cycle route nearby. The bin probably doesn't have to be located in the actual cycle track either.

The Queensway footway resumes at Falkland Drive.

Toucan crossing across Stewartfield Way, primarily for the Stewartfield Way cycle route, but also useful for the Glen Road path (straight ahead).

The Glen Road path, linking Stewartfield Way to actual Glen Road, which leads towards Carmunnock and Glasgow.

The Stewartfield Way cycleway approaches its destination at the National Museum of Rural Life. There used to be markings on the footway beyond the toucan crossing saying 'END', now faded away, since the shared-use section on this side ha ... [more]

The underpass beneath Kingsway at the end of Maxwellton Road has ramps and is possible to cycle, but has lots of sharp corners. The dropped kerb is also a bit of a bump.

The Burns Park end of the footbridge across Kingsway.

The railway path into East Kilbride, NCN756, with a sign for "Primary Schools" off to the left.

The cycle route from Blantyre joins NCN756. The railway path has now been properly surfaced.

The cycle route from Blantyre leaves Wilson Place to join NCN756, but no mention of NCN756 on the sign. A dropped kerb at the end of the path would be of assistance to anyone cycling to or from Wilson Place itself.

The cycle route from Blantyre crosses Wilson Place to join NCN756, but no mention of NCN756 on the signs. Also, if the markings barely fit on the pavement, the shared footway is probably too narrow.
