Signage at the Kelpies, at the last proper bridge across this section of the canal.

Signage at the Kelpies Marina. The destinations across the canal can only be reached by crossing the lock gate in the background, or by going back to the bridge near the Kelpies car park.

Signage at the Kelpies Marina.

Four ways, only two signposted, and a desire line becoming apparent.

The HArTT path gets narrower, and starts twisting and turning.

Signs in Bainsford. I can't think why Carron and Stenhousemuir are only for pedestrians, or why they didn't name the hospital. Imagine walking three and a quarter miles and it turns out to be the wrong one! The single-sided HArTT cycle r ... [more]

Pedestrian signage on the HArTT cycle path at Bainsford, although not actually at a junction.

Signage for the HArTT cycle route, in its usual tiny writing.

Signage for the HArTT cycle route on a bus stop on Slamannan Road.

Tiny route signage for the HArTT cycle route. Easy to miss at a turn.

The path from the Westquarter Glen meets up with New Hallglen Road. The nearest sign for the HArTT cycle route is at #102843.

A sign for the HArTT cycle route pointing towards Spinkhill (see #103160), but as the old railway bridge was removed (see #103161), a hair-pin bend path has been built up to New Hallglen Road to use its bridge instead. No indications whethe ... [more]

Tiny signs for the HArTT cycle route below another sign at Spinkhill. Are people really expected to notice these?

Signage for the HArTT cycle route on Spinkhill, directing cyclists going to the Helix and Kelpies through the Westquarter Glen.

From the bridge across the Westquarter Burn (see #103078), the HArTT cycle route is signed along the lower path along the west bank.

The HArTT cycle route crosses the Westquarter Burn.

The HArTT cycle route turning into the Westquarter Glen proper.

The destination sign points to the HArTT cycle route's destinations of Callendar Park and the Falkirk Wheel as being up the path to Ash Grove but the HArTT cycle route badge points right along the path to the Westquarter Glen. See also #103 ... [more]

Signs for the HArTT cycle route at Polmont Road.

Having left Callendar Woods, the asphalt and signage for the HArTT cycle route return.

The entrance to Callendar Wood, with red marker posts. Or are they just bollards?

A route sign for the walking version of the John Muir Way at Falkirk High station. This station entrance has two short flights of steps to get to the eastbound platform, and is not shown on the usually excellent National Rail station pla ... [more]

Helpful. Ed: The sign reads: "Callendar Woods Path Network" then in much smaller text: "Scottish Rights of Way and Access Society, Edinburgh"

Helix signage at Laurieston Road, but shows the HArTT cycle route turning right instead of left!

Helix signage at the junction for the M9 motorway underpass through to Grangemouth. The HArTT cycle route turns left here, and there is a tiny badge to that effect, but nothing for the opposite direction (seen at #102938).

The path under the M9 motorway connecting the Helix park to Grangemouth. From here, the signed route to the Jupiter Wildlife Centre is for pedestrians only. A signed cycle route to the centre of Grangemouth could be organised at minimal exp ... [more]

A single-sided sign for the routes available across the Grange Burn, but a low kerb rather than a proper dropped kerb at the end of the path. I wouldn't want to bump the bike over this when it is loaded with shopping!

Signs on the path network near the Grange Burn. The sign for Grangemouth Stadium is for pedestrians only, unlike the next one, shown in #102918.

NCN76 goes up this flight of steps to the Kinneil Estate. Smooth earth next to the steps acts as a sort of wheeling ramp. A single sign - easy to miss on this downhill section of road. I don't know why the path at the top of the steps co ... [more]

NCN76 turns right here towards Bo'ness while the Inchyra Road route carries on towards Grangemouth oil refinery (although this is not signed).

A sign with its posts blocking part of the width of the shared-use footway along Inchyra Road. The path clearly predates the sign. If someone is coming the other way, one of you will have to slow down to let the other go first.

A road sign straddling the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road, with the posts more or less at the edges of the path, unlike the next sign.

While the John Muir Way signs give correct direction information, the HArTT cycle route signs tell people to cycle over a continuous crash barrier and down a steep embankment. The signs haven't been twisted around - they are bolted together ... [more]

Helix signage with a HArTT badge at Mumrills Road.

Surface dressing at the Carradale Avenue junction on Glenfuir Road.

The towpath on the Forth & Clyde Canal merges into the footway of the adjacent road at Lock 16. Signage includes directions to the Union Canal, although the route is just along the main road.

The view the opposite way to #101520, and the end of an unspecified cycle route. The HArTT cycle route comes through here too, but is without a sign.

Various signs but no mention of the HArTT cycle route which comes through here and along the path to Bainsford according to the council's map. See also #101522.

Posts for the huge motorist sign have been kept (almost) out of the way of the cycleway.

The turnoff from the A9 shared footway for the ramp down to the Forth & Clyde Canal, including a marker post for the HArTT cycle route.

A sign warning of the path junction up ahead. There's another beyond the junction facing the wrong way.

A sign warning of a path joining from the right. It's more of a dirt path than an actual cycle track.

Signs for motorists are bigger.

Signage in the Helix park, including a badge for the HArTT cycle route.

Barriers across an exit from the Helix park.

Signage in the Helix park, including a badge on the post for the HArTT cycle route.

Signage in the Helix park.

Helix signage outside the football stadium.

A sign for the Helix park.

A big sign for the roundabout at the end of Callendar Boulevard, but motorway regulations do not apply immediately on the road to the right. This sign is in effect a 'No Turn Right' sign for non-motorway traffic, and completely bogus.

A route sign for the HArTT cycle route, directing cyclists onto the A9. There is no evidence to be seen that the footway on this section is legal for shared-use.

A route sign for the HArTT cycle route, but most definitely not the most direct route to the Helix and Kelpies. Could the writing on these signs be any smaller?

A sign for the HArTT cycle route, the park café, and people enjoying the amenities in Callendar Park.

A route sign for the HArTT cycle route in Hallglen, with the route to Callendar Woods directed through the middle of a playground. The path in the foreground continues right through Hallglen.

A route sign at the end of the path through Hallglen, pointing across the main road to the paths at #101176. The road crossing is terrible and desperately needs upgrading. Due to the terrain, a footbridge may even be an easy enough solution ... [more]

A route sign at one corner of a triangular path junction. The route to Callendar Woods continues across the main road to the left at #101177, at the foot of the steps up to the houses. However, there is no sign for the HArTT cycle route, as ... [more]

A route sign on the Union Canal, with four directions indicated: Union Canal eastbound (via Falkirk Tunnel) Union Canal westbound (Falkirk Wheel) Falkirk High station Dirt path to Slamannan Road (part of the HArTT cycle route, #103474) ... [more]

A route sign on the Union Canal, with four directions indicated: Union Canal eastbound (via Falkirk Tunnel, sign hidden behind post) Union Canal westbound (Falkirk Wheel) Falkirk High station Dirt path to Slamannan Road (part of the HAr ... [more]

Signs for various destinations. The blue sign with tiny writing is for the HArTT cycle route. Perhaps the broken bits beneath the other signs are the remains for the HArTT sign for the other direction.

Signs for all directions.

Direction signs at the access from Bracken Avenue, but why this obsession with "End of Cycle Route" signs in this town? The path doesn't end until it reaches the road in any case. Also, the signs on one side are lit, and those on the side a ... [more]

The sign invites left turns from the Lionthorn Road shared-use footway onto the path to Slamannan Road, but the barriers makes them rather awkward with a bike.

Kissing gates at railway crossing on John Muir Way.

Signs on the John Muir Way at Kinneil Halt.

Signs and a waymarker post on the John Muir Way.

A destination sign facing the wrong way in Stewart Avenue.

The cycle parking at the bus station has been made needlessly tricky to get a bike to.
