Footpath from Philipshill Road to Carmunnoch Road is very narrow. Maybe a metre wide just now so could be double that.

Pavement really narrow and in poor state of repair with roots underneath/erosion. Pedestrains passing one another need to step out into the 70mph limit road to keep 2 m distance from one another. No need for dual carriageway here - widen th ... [more]

The path through the woods at Cathkin is usable on this section, but some parts are too steep, including crossfall, to cycle all the way. The path ends before the connection to Burnside Road, so it is necessary to rejoin the busy Cathkin Ro ... [more]

I had intended to head west through to the Cathkin Braes mountain biking site, but the path was too muddy to cycle, so I headed in the opposite direction instead.

The track from Markethill Road to South Cathkin Farm passes the entrance to the former quarry and landfill site, and the surface quality only gets worse from here onwards. Large muddy puddles, and best to avoid. The muddy track joins asphal ... [more]

The path from Queensway to Tennant Avenue appears to suffer from ponding, and is covered in mud. There's also no easy way onto the carriageway for cyclists due to the parking.

Although the lighting has been replaced in recent years, the path from the bus stop on Queensway to Tennant Avenue (and onwards to Hairmyres Hospital) is narrow, has poor quality paving, and has no dropped kerbs at its crossing with Linwood ... [more]

A poor quality path connecting the industrial areas of Fairfield Place and Arrotshole Road.

The underpass from Maxwellton Road under Kingsway ramps up to Maxwell Drive. The sign for NCN756 suggests cyclists are expected, yet there is no dropped kerb to join the carriageway at the end of the ramp. However, there is a dropped ker ... [more]

The Maxwellton Road underpass beneath Kingsway is unlit during daytime, apart from the skylight in the central reservation. A far cry from the neat conservation area on Maxwellton Road.

I saw someone walking across from Applegate Drive when I was further back along Netherton Road, but I see there is no path here.

A messy end to Netherton Road path at the housing development in Lindsayfield. Direct access to Jackton Road is long gone, although the sign for the East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route is visible.

Nothing can be built to line up anymore when it comes to paths. The Cathkin Relief Road's pedestrian crossing at Fernhill Road.

A hair-pin path down to a small bridge across the burn, where steps would allow walkers a more direct route.

Nobody would ever think to take a short-cut down the hillside rather than use the hair-pin path.

A poorly formed path that could be connecting the streets in this housing development.
