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]

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 '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]

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).

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]

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.

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.

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?

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.

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

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]

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.

"Discontinuous National Cycle Route - Rejoin route after 600 yds on Glasgow Rd Blantyre" "Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" No dropped kerb to rejoin carriageway, and no signage for those unfamiliar with the area to get to Glasgow Road. See al ... [more]

"Discontinuous National Cycle Route - Rejoin route after 600 yds on Whistleberry Rd" "Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" No dropped kerb to rejoin carriageway, and no signage for those unfamiliar with the area to get to Whistleberry Road. The ... [more]

Route sign on East Kilbride local cycle route 1 changes to P on a red patch for no obvious reason

End of Cycle Route and Cyclists Dismount signs at end of shared-use footway on Queensway. Quite why the footway on the rest of Queensway is considered any less suitable for shared-use is anybody's guess! West Mains Road is very busy and ... [more]

Recommended Route sign used for cycle path in Mossneuk (see also #31501).

Junction of East Kilbride local cycle route 1 (to Newlandsmuir and Strathaven) and anonymous cycle route to Hairmyres. This is signed with a mix of Cycles Only, Shared Use and Recommended Route signs (see #31502), rarely in the right places ... [more]

Inconsistent route signage on East Kilbride local route 1, one sign has route number on red (NCN) patch, the other has no route number.

End of Cycle Route sign on route that could so obviously have been made much longer. (path leads to toucan crossing, see #31494) UPDATE 2014: Shared use signs have since been erected along the length of this path, as far as Stewartfield ... [more]

Minimalist cycle route signing on the circular High Blantyre - Flemington cycle route (no destinations are shown on any signs associated with this route!) UPDATE April 2015: Some cycle route signs with destinations have now appeared at t ... [more]

No Cycling sign before end of shared-use footway opposite junction on Uddingston to East Kilbride cycle route. (see also #31484) There are also narrow advisory cycle lanes on this section of the A724.

NCN 756 on Johnstone Drive, Rutherglen. The sign is rather small and does not give route number.

Look out for the sign tucked down a side-street.
