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.

The cycle route along the Whitemoss Avenue shared footway is signed into the park, including a rather steep bit of path at the corner (seen also in #107580).

Route signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout for the cycle route to Brancumhall, but the Health Centre pointed to is not the closest health centre to this location, and so could be confusing.

A new 'No Entry' sign for the resurfaced cycle off-ramp from Churchill Avenue at the Murray Roundabout, but no longer any signs for local routes 2 and 3. So close to the town centre, but no wayfinding.

Not only does the cycle route cross Stewartfield Way at this split pedestrian crossing, and not a toucan crossing with the extra call buttons, but the sign for the cycle route into East Kilbride is pointing the wrong way! There are no furth ... [more]

The cycle route into East Kilbride crosses Stewartfield Way at this split pedestrian crossing.

Why can't the corner be more rounded? What are the bollards for? Why isn't there a distance for the town centre? The cycle route doesn't even go as far as the town centre. It gives up on Queensway at #31505.

The cycle route joins a path.

East Kilbride a quarter of a mile away? Only the very edge of town.

Anonymous route signs for the cycle route to Thorntonhall and Eaglesham, but nothing for the shared footway ahead.

The end of the Stewartfield Way cycle route, from Kingsgate to the National Museum of Rural Life. The bollards were a little tight, especially so close to the turn onto the crossing.

Both East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 turn right after the underpass, but definitely not NCN route 3.

East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 turn left here, but only this tiny vandalised sign marks the way.

A vandalised sign for NCN756 in a non-standard format, and no dropped kerb to allow cyclists to leave the carriageway and join the path.

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

Clear signage for destinations along NCN756, but none for some of the paths off to the side. Highfield Place's turn-off.

NCN756 turns left to leave the railway path alignment, while the cycle route to Blantyre and Hamilton starts, but is only signed as going to East Mains. There's a sign for Hamilton up on Wilson Place.

NCN756 leaves the railway path and joins The Gateway and Mavor Avenue.

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.

The Blantyre to East Kilbride cycle route crosses Kingsway here.

Motorists: Don't U-turn Cyclists: U-turn The A749 crossing on NCN756 outside the Kingsgate Retail Park, before the cycle route makes its way through Nerston village.

The Stewartfield cycle route meets the cycle route along Stewartfield Way (connecting the National Museum of Rural Life to NCN756 at Kingsgate), but only directional signage for the latter.

The Stewartfield cycle route leaves Stewartfield Crescent and takes the path. There would appear to be room for a diagonal connecting path to avoid the right angled corners on the path as it is, originally designed for use only by pedestria ... [more]

The Stewartfield cycle route leaves the path to join the footway of Stewartfield Crescent.

Directional signage on the cycle route through Stewartfield, but only in one direction.

The cycle route to Stewartfield doesn't actually have any destination signs in the direction towards Stewartfield. Turn right here for Stewartfield, or continue straight ahead to #31495 where the shared footway along West Mains Road ends. ... [more]

East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 come out of the underpass and split to proceed in opposite directions. So I'd expect better signage than this!

A route sign for East Kilbride cycle route 2, but is it pointing along the path or the carriageway?

A route sign that appears to have been twisted around, since it is facing the houses in Mount Cameron Drive North.

A route sign for route 'P', pointing into the Tesco supermarket. This sign is also found at #31508.

The first sign in a while for East Kilbride cycle route 2. The next sign (pointing left) has a letter 'P' on a red background.

East Kilbride cycle route 2 in St Leonards.

A sign for National Cycle Network Route 2, except it's actually for East Kilbride route 2, and doesn't clearly identify whether it is for the road on the right or the path just beyond it.

The route finally arrives at the Brancumhall Estate, turning right off of Morrishall Road into Galloway Road.

The route to Brancumhall turns onto Morrishall Road. There was no indication that this route (which made its way along Calderwood Road on the footway) is not on-road along this section of fairly busy and fast road.

The 'Recommended Route for Cyclists' signs on this route are all facing across the carriageway instead of along it. So consistently that it looks like an installation problem rather than vandalism.

Signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout, including some pointing up a flight of steps.

Signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout. I can see a problem with the route to the Sports Centre, and I'm not sure the signs for the Health Centre are pointing the right way. The nearest health centre might be the Hunter Health Centre back in the ... [more]

This way to the cycle route, at Whitemoss Roundabout.

A sign for the Sports Centre, but what about the cycle route all the way to Brancumhall?

A sign for East Kilbride town centre. But choose the further away path if you intend to use the shared footway and don't want to bump over the grass (see #107587).

The cycleway along the Whitemoss Avenue footway (see #107581) is signed into the park and towards Avondale Avenue (and the path with steps in #107573).

The last sign I encountered on the Whitehills cycle route.

The Whitehills cycle path at the Stroud Road underpass, leading to Whitehills Terrace where cyclists rejoin the carriageway.

End of the Whitehills cycle route, but with a Toucan crossing across Quarry Road it could be extended along the path to Greenhills. The nearest dropped kerb to join the carriageway is at the uncontrolled crossing beyond the bus stop.

The start of the Whitehills cycle path at Quarry Road, but no dropped kerb. Plenty of room for a Toucan crossing across to the path to Greenhills.

A route sign for the East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route facing a grassy slope with no path across it. The access has been moved further west (see #107502).

The first sign that the East Kilbride cycle route 1 has morphed into the East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route. Some of the signs on this route include the '1' number, others such as these do not.

Signs for East Kilbride's cycle route 1 pointing both left and right at the Westwood Hill junction. Maybe the one across the junction is for the right turn into Newlands Road and has got twisted around.

Rockhampton Avenue ends in a Fire Path with a rather messy gap between the kerb ridges. No cycle exemption from the 'No Entry' signs, and a route sign pointing right at the far side of the junction, when East Kilbride's cycle route 1 turns ... [more]

The first sign on East Kilbride's cycle route 1 that says where it is going, and the next time a destination is mentioned it has changed to Strathaven.

Another junction on East Kilbride's cycle route 1 where there is only a sign in one direction at a turn. If only the routes wasn't so darned complicated!

A route sign for East Kilbride's cycle route 1 on Melbourne Avenue.

A sign for East Kilbride's cycle route 1 on Carnegie Hill approaching Livingstone Drive, but nothing for turns in either direction from Livingstone Drive itself.

Signs for the inbound version of East Kilbride's cycle route 1, which ends up on Cornwall Street before the turn into Blacklands Road.

Pedestrian signage at the Righead Roundabout, and over next to the underpass, an outbound sign for East Kilbride's cycle route 1.

At last, the second sign in the outbound direction for East Kilbride's cycle route 1. But no sign in the other direction.

A damaged sign at the start of East Kilbride's local route 1 in Andrew Street. I think this was the only sign I saw with a blue background to the route number instead of an incorrect red background. No sign for the turn from the opposite ... [more]

Signage for the original Biggar to Lanark (Kirkfieldbank) cycle route, but no signage for the route in the Douglas/Happendon direction. A newer Biggar to Lanark cycle route has been provided via Hyndford Bridge, but involves cycling along t ... [more]

A sign for a cycle route to Lanark, but without a destination. There is no longer a corresponding sign on the other side of the road, just signage for NCN74.

Lots of destinations in Stonehouse, but the sign for Larkhall shouldn't have brackets around '74' since it is actually on route 74.

A diversion sign for NCN756 (due to severance at Richmond Park) at the Smartbridge, and NCN75 Clyde Walkway on the far bank.

The East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route is only signed in one direction on this route because the route was copied out of a book, and the return direction takes a totally different (and longer) route. It also now has NCN1 signage.

A sign with destinations, but what if I want to go towards Philipshill Cemetery and Carmunnock (route visible through the bridge)?

The anonymous cycle route signs points left, but the rather narrow footway straight ahead is also shared-use, as can be seen in #92637.

The sign says some anonymous cycle route turns right, but the footway to the left is also shared-use. Plus another pedestrian crossing on a cycle route where a toucan crossing (with the extra call buttons) would be expected.

The contraflow on the footway isn't even widened where the road is mostly marked "Keep Clear". Plus the (74) signs keep popping up.

"This project has been delivered with support from Strathclyde Partnership for Transport and Sustrans to encourage walking and cycling. Active travel benefits your health and the environment." The only other person I saw on a bike on thi ... [more]

NCN74 signs mix with (74) signs. NCN74 and the route signed as (74) both ways cross the A724 here, then take different routes to Hamilton. Surely it would be better to give (74) a proper route number like NCN741?

NCN74 screened from the A725 East Kilbride expressway.

A large route sign on a single round pole, facing the wrong way.

A damaged route sign at Cadzow Lane, and the van parked on the cycle path from #89518.

The first (74) route sign for the route from Hamilton town centre to NCN74 in Mote Hill. I guess that the 3/4 mile is the distance until the junction with NCN74. Also some cycle parking stands.

A sign for (74) on Auchinraith Road.

I don't know whether this counts as a branch of route (74) or if this is a sign directing towards route (74). None of the destinations are on actual NCN74. No sign for an opposite direction.

Literally the junction between route (74) and route (74)!

A branch of route (74) crosses Cypress Avenue.

Spot the route sign telling cyclists on route (74) to cross the road.

Onto the footway at the roundabout at Drumsagard. South Lanarkshire Council has signed the A724 as NCN74, even though the Sustrans NCN74 goes to Uddingston to join NCN75.

Route sign for NCN75 on Bridge Street. Of the two signs pointing up Bridge Street, one is for route 74 and the other for (74). Despite this being a signed turning, and there being on-road cycle lanes, the only dropped kerb is beyond the ... [more]

The route sign here says NCN74 turns left down Bridge Street, but there is another sign further down Bridge Street that refers to route (74) meaning that the road leads to route 74 and isn't itself route 74. There are other signs for 74 fur ... [more]

The instruction is clear that the route transfers from the footway to the carriageway at the junction ahead, but drivers are driving their vehicles like the cycle lane beyond the junction isn't there.

The route signs for the turn from Hamilton Road into Main Street appear to be facing the wrong way. There is no sign for the left turn into Hamilton Road, and instead a sign facing cyclists coming from Rutherglen that is sending them back t ... [more]

An unusual route sign with the arrow at the top rather than to the side, on King Street.

Signs at the junction of NCN756 on the shared footway of Glasgow Road, and NCN74 on King Street (see also #70518).

NCN756 on the shared footway of Glasgow Road at the M74 motorway flyover. One of the better bits along this road, although there is no separation between the cycleway and the carriageway.

Route sign for Hyndford pointing along quiet back street. This route ends up back on the main road further out of town.

Route signs for the Lanark to Hyndford section of cycle route. No mention of Biggar here.

Start of segregated cycle track alongside main A70 road to Hyndford Bridge, at Carmichael junction.

Cycle sign for Croftfoot station, plus warning of road closure ahead that doesn't mention that cycles are allowed through (see #49760)

The East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route is signed with signs containing a red NCN1 patch, when it is actually a local route number, so should be on a blue background.

There are no signs in the centre of Strathaven for the cycle route to East Kilbride, just this one on the outskirts.

East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route signed with NCN1 sign, and no sign for return direction.

Junction where the road from Eaglesham meets the East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route. Distances on the various signs vary!

National cycle route 74

Mote Hill junction, with NCN 74 signage just showing North and South. Road closure visible on hill.

Route sign on Avon Water path
