A last few twists and turns before the Kelpies.

Molehills in the asphalt?

A corrugated underpass for the HArTT path beneath New Carron Road, but with poor sightlines at this side.

The HArTT cycle path runs alongside the River Carron, and under this old railway bridge.

The asphalt surface has ended as the HArTT cycle path nears the River Carron.

As the road closure between Cotland Drive and Muirhead Avenue has been nicely placed where the HArTT cycle path passes through, it is a bit disappointing to see this 'give way' and lack of continuity on the cycle path.

No dropped kerb at the start of the path on Garbett Place. No signage either, even though this is part of the HArTT cycle route.

If there was a flight of steps here before, it is now a ramp.

The path from Camelon at Sunnyside Playing Fields. The path to Bainsford and Carronside is visible beyond the rugby pitch.

The path between Sunnyside Street and Sunnyside Playing Fields is a Right of Way.

No properly dropped kerb at the steps and ramp (ramp out of sight to the right) up to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at the Carmuirs Park football ground car park.

Anonymous off-ramp from the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to the Carmuirs Park football ground car park.

The shared-use path from the canal to the Falkirk Wheel North Car Park and continuing onwards to the Park'n'Ride car park at the A803/A883 roundabout.

The Forth & Clyde Canal, with the Falkirk Wheel just out of sight off to the right.

The Forth & Clyde Canal towpath and garden at Bonnybridge.

The swingbridge at Bonnybridge on the Forth & Clyde Canal.

The Forth & Clyde Canal and towpath looking east. The van at the locks was parked right across the path.

The HArTT cycle route goes down this track from Slamannan Road to the Union Canal.

Someone must have decided this layout was a good idea!

The path towards Slamannan Road and Falkirk High station, with lighting columns placed so they do not obstruct the path.

A new path for the HArTT cycle route, together with waymarker post.

Once the path gets going, it is fine, until the next road crossing.

The end of the Hallglen cycle path at Hallglen Primary School.

The Hallglen cycle path goes around a bus shelter in New Hallglen Road.

The Hallglen cycle path crosses the spinal path.

The start of around 300 metres of cycle path to Hallglen Primary School from Nevis Place. It crosses the spinal path which doesn't appear to be regarded as a path for cycling.

The path between the southeastern and southwestern parts of Hallglen. See also #103463.

A decent quality bridge across the Westquarter Burn, and the path up to Polmont Road, both part of the HArTT cycle route.

A good quality of path surface, but it needs a good sweep!

The path linking Laurieston to the Helix park, at the top of the hill down to the A9 crossing at #102863.

The HArTT cycle route crossing Icehouse Brae (North), with a waymarker post tucked away in the corner. Surprisingly, no 'End of Cycle Route' signs!

The HArTT cycle route turns right here, across Icehouse Brae, near the roundabout with the A9. What I didn't notice at the time was the shared-use sign on the grass verge to the right, before the roundabout.

A footbridge across the Grange Burn Flood Relief Channel, linking the Grange Burn path to Rannoch Park. The A905 and M9 motorway lie beyond.

NCN76 shared footway looking towards Zetland Park.

The Grangemouth cycle route crosses Inchyra Road, next to the roundabout with Bo'ness Road, linking from the access road alongside the main A904 carriageway.

The Grangemouth cycle route crosses Inchyra Road, next to the roundabout with Bo'ness Road.

The start of the cycle route alongside Bo'ness Road in Grangemouth. The cycle side appears to be on the right rather than the left side of the line as the sign suggests.

The John Muir Way leaving a car park at the Kinneil end of the Bo'ness waterfront section.

The John Muir Way in Bo'ness has been resurfaced with smooth asphalt, and solar LED catseyes for lighting.

The John Muir Way path on the waterfront at Bo'ness has been resurfaced in smooth asphalt with solar LED catseyes for lighting.

The path into the Kinneil Estate starts off narrow and twisty, but later widens out into more of a track.

The shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road. The person with the bike had ridden through Rannoch Park but dismounted at the awkward bit linking the park to the main road (see #102853).

A path to Rannoch Park at the end of the Inchyra Road shared-use footway.

A good surface but could do with a sweep.

Mumrills Road is now a well surfaced path between Sandy Loan and the A9 underpass at Beancross.

The path into Callendar Woods diverges from the path to Callendar Boulevard.

Why have a straight path alongside the car park?

Filtered permeability on Summerford Road.

The path on the other side of the Forth & Clyde Canal. The main towpath is across the water.

The Westburn Avenue shared-use footway crosses Westburn Avenue to get to the signalled crossing on Glenfuir Road and the bridge over the canal to the main towpath. The footway widening doesn't quite make it to the end of the shared footway.

The Westburn Avenue shared footway crossing Blinkbonny Road.

The start of the not exactly terribly wide shared-use footway along Westburn Avenue. It doesn't look much different from the bit that isn't shared-use.

A newly resurfaced path to Camelon at the Sunnyside playing fields. Plenty of gradients.

The Forth & Clyde Canal towpath has LED catseyes on this section in Falkirk.

The A9 shared-use footway/cycleway turns a corner into Mungalend and just ends. The A9 itself continues without any cycle provision. The car parked on the footway across the junction has 'for sale' notices in the window. Buy from a pavem ... [more]

Left and right turns catered for at the Abbotsford Business Park junction on the A9 shared footway/cycleway, instead of the usual forced right-angled turn.

The shared-use footway alongside the A9 crosses sides for some reason.

The shared-use footway alongside the A9 crosses sides for some reason, although there appears to be room for it to stay on the same side. There's even a signalled crossing in about half a mile or so.

The shared-use footway alongside the A9 crosses sides for some reason, although there's a choice of going clockwise or anti-clockwise around the roundabout. But someone going to Abbotsford Business Park has to cross the A9 twice.

The shared footway alongside the A9, with a warning for drivers of the crossing up ahead.

No provision for joining the ramp down to the Forth & Clyde Canal directly coming from the west, so must make sharp turn. Maybe not the most popular direction to approach from, but would have been easy to build at the same time as the rest ... [more]

The Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at the junction with the ramp up to the A9 bridge, and with the Kelpies in the background.

More arrivals from the direction of a car park.

The path between the football stadium and the main section of the Helix park.

A counter on the way into the Helix park.

The path to Laurieston Road passes between an industrial estate and a railway line.

The path, rather than coming to an end as the sign suggests, crosses the A9 at grade, and continues across the far side. There is also a shared-use footway alongside the A9 to the right.

Approaching the A9 crossing. Only the railway gets a bridge.

One missing bollard at the end of Bog Road and the joyriders are out taking advantage of it. When is the motoring community going to get to grips with this sort of behaviour?

Exit from Callendar Park.

A junction between shared-use paths, but there appears to be no expectation of users from this direction wanting to turn right, with no shortcut path on the desire line.

A shared-use footway on Lionthorn Road, but I initially missed its existence back at the roundabout so had to bump the kerb and grass to get onto it.

A steep access ramp to the Union Canal towpath, although there's not much that could be done to reduce the gradient without a big budget.

The Union Canal towpath approaching the Falkirk Tunnel.

Inside the Union Canal's Falkirk Tunnel.

Looking inside the Union Canal's Falkirk Tunnel. A sign back at #101156 advises dismounting. I wouldn't disagree. This end of the tunnel is quite wet, so can be slippery.

The Union Canal towpath approaching the Falkirk Tunnel, with some curious people looking in.

On the left a new ramp up to a car park (see #101153), and on the right the path connecting to the Union Canal.

A new ramp up to a new car park and cycle parking (see #101148), linked to Falkirk High station. The gap in the railing halfway up is for a dirt path leading to Slamannan Road.

The passageway under the railway linking Drossie Road to the Union Canal (part of the John Muir Way), plus some cycle parking stands in a car park.

Ochil hills

Blackness - Bo'ness path

Path alongside section of the Forth & Clyde Canal between The Kelpies and where the canal now exits into the River Carron. This path leads to NCN76, is lit with LED catseyes, and is seen passing beneath the M9 motorway.

Falkirk canal tunnel on the Union Canal (NCN 754)

Roughcastle Tunnel on Union Canal approaching the Falkirk Wheel (NCN 754) You have to go through a tunnel before you get to the Falkirk Wheel.

A useful though badly maintained cycle track beside a busy main road BUT Why did they stick a third pole for this sign in the middle of the cycle track? It may have changed now as this is a ten year old photo but it shows what we are up aga ... [more]
