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

The cycle route joins a path.

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.

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 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 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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

NCN74 screened from the A725 East Kilbride expressway.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Signage on NCN 74. Work on building the main road route between Chatelherault and Larkhall will begin in July 2012, according to Sustrans.

NCN 74 route sign at Bothwell Bridge

NCN 74 at Wilkie Road, approaching junction with Bellshill Road. The cycle route goes onto the path straight on. The "Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" sign is facing the wrong way.

Junction of National Cycle Network routes 74 and 75 in Uddingston. Signs do not mention route 75 straight on to Uddingston town centre and Glasgow. Barrier has been removed so cyclists can join carriageway directly.

Junction of NCN 756 and East Kilbride to Uddingston cycle route. The sign with back to camera should be pointing toward camera, i.e. towards East Kilbride.

East Kilbride local cycle route 1 starts in an obscure side street that just happens to be home to the council buildings

NCN 756 crosses Stewartfield Way at this toucan crossing, while there is a continuation of the shared-use footway along most of the rest of this road to the agriculture museum on the west side of town.

NCN 756 is on a shared-use footway through industrial estate

Sign for East Kilbride at point where NCN 75 and local route between Uddingston and East Kilbride diverge. There are no signs facing cyclists coming from the Westburn direction, and no signs for NCN 75 itself at this location.
