Kelvin Walkway to Milngavie

Walked the Kelvin Walkway from my house to Milngavie (pronounced Mill Guy!). The river is not exactly pretty on a grey day in late January... But it will make great flat water canoeing ground for the open canoe in summer!

The Central Lowlands do power lines, lots of them!

This is the Balmuildy Bridge carrying the A879 Glasgow to Milngavie road.

Right along side is the main water supply to Northern Glasgow, and the Kelvin Walkway footbridge.

A tree which seems to have had a hard time at some point in the past!

The walk up the Allander from the Kelvin to Milngavie is quite flat and largely straightened for a big chunk of the way, but the reward is the mill weir in the carpark of Tesco's:

Quite possible in flood, looked OK last week with just an extra 3 or 4 inches on the main drop...
