Cycle parking and a pump at Larbert Library.

A marker post for the HArTT cycle route.

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.

A last few twists and turns before the Kelpies.

Art in the woods.

A marker post for the HArTT cycle route's right turn. The path ahead leads to a bridge across the River Carron, so I'd expect a little more signage at this junction.

Another 'End of Cycle Route' followed immediately by the continuation of the same cycle route. Slow for and give way to anyone with keys to the gate.

A HArTT marker post for a right turn.

A HArTT marker post.

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

Priority over oncoming vehicles for northbound traffic at the bridge over the River Carron, and narrow gaps for drainage and maybe cycling. The road is bypassed by the newer New Carron Road.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

The path from Sunnyside Playing Fields arrives at Sunnyside Street, although it is a bit hidden from view from the road by the buildings.

An opportunity to create a cycle link between Abercrombie Street and Mansionhouse Road across the A803 Main Street in Camelon by upgrading the existing pedestrian crossing. Mansionhouse Road leads to the Forth & Clyde Canal.

An opportunity to create a cycle link between Mansionhouse Road and Abercrombie Street across the A803 (and with A9 traffic) Main Street in Camelon, by upgrading the existing pedestrian crossing and installing dropped kerbs outside Falkirk ... [more]

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

Cycle parking at the Falkirk Wheel North Car Park. It is hard to imagine why anyone would park a bike here, some distance from the actual Falkirk Wheel and its visitors' centre, unless the canal towpath was extremely busy. Road access to ... [more]

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 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.

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

Someone must have decided this layout was a good idea!

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 Hallglen Terrace and the start of the path through to the Glenburn Road underpass. See also #103233.

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 underpass beneath New Hallglen Road on the spinal path through Hallglen could do with some TLC.

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 eastern end of the step-free section of the spinal path right through the northern side of Hallglen.

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

'No Motor Vehicles' over the rebuilt railway bridge at Hallglen, although they'd either have to fit through the underpass at #103230 or come down some steps!

The Glenburn Road underpass, near Beauly Court, could do with a bit of tidying up.

The step-free access continues, but only through the underpass. Other than that, the only other option is onto the carriageway at Beauly Court.

The step-free path through the southeastern part of Hallglen, the opposite end from #103227.

Land available for a step-free path across to New Hallglen Road and connections to the wider path network.

One of the few step-free connections to the main path through the southeastern part of Hallglen, linking to Glenburn Road.

The John Muir Way heads across to the Union Canal from New Hallglen Road.

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

A new bridge over the Westquarter Burn for access to a new housing development. Imagine if that sort of money had been spent on the path!

A new bridge for access to a new housing development, crossing the Westquarter Burn and path.

The path alongside the Westquarter Burn.

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

A waterfall on the Westquarter Burn. A nice path for a walk, but there's a surprise for cyclists following the signed HArTT cycle route just around the next bend.

The path up the Westquarter Glen.

The path up 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 local path crossing the path to the Westquarter Glen and HArTT cycle route is built to a better standard than the main path.

A sudden change in path surface quality, and it gets worse further on. See also #103074.

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

Signs for the HArTT cycle route at Polmont Road.

A small park in Laurieston, with the path to the Helix park diverging to the left.

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.

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).

'End of Cycle Route'? The HArTT cycle route turns left here, and there is a link to Grangemouth through the underpass on the right. See #102937 for a close-up of the directions sign.

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 toucan crossing across A905 Beancross Road, a signed walking route to the Jupiter Wildlife Centre, and barriers across a path to Chisholm Place/Almond Street. Primrose Avenue (to the left behind the camera) is a key link between Grange ... [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!

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

The path alongside the Grange Burn, a bridge across the Grange Burn, and a sign for a completely cycleable walking route to Grangemouth Stadium.

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.

Looking across NCN76 at the path junction near Torwood Avenue.

The paths clearly existed before NCN76 came along, and the alignments and widths were not altered.

A shared-use path starts on the left, to avoid the junction ahead, although NCN76 appears not to use it and instead turns at the junction, then turns again onto the next section of the same path. The dropped kerb is also far from flush, ... [more]

A painted cycle lane has been provided through the traffic calming pinch-point, but only in one direction.

NCN76 shared footway looking towards Zetland Park.

NCN76 goes from Park Road into Zetland Park.

The NCN76 turn from Bo'ness Road into Park Road is quickly blocked by traffic queuing at the Abbots Road traffic signals. No signage for the route to Grangemouth oil refinery to the right.

The painted cycle lanes on Bo'ness Road end here, and a jug-handle is provided to cross to the parallel access road to the right.

The painted cycle lanes continue from here into Grangemouth town centre.

The Grangemouth cycle route leaves the relative calm of the access roads to join painted cycle lanes on the main A904 carriageway.

The Grangemouth cycle route links between sections of access road alongside the main Bo'ness Road carriageway, with a short cycle track to wait on before making the turn across potential motor traffic to and from the A904 roundabout.

The Grangemouth cycle route links from one section of access road alongside Bo'ness Road to another.

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.

Bo'ness Road in Grangemouth oil refinery. The footway has resumed, but the cycleway (see #102751) has yet to start.

The National Speed Limit applies on Bo'ness Road towards Grangemouth oil refinery. The footway ceases shortly, and only resumes at the refinery some distance past the narrow River Avon bridge.

The hilly road to Bo'ness.

An abandoned section of old road at Kinneil, with no connecting path to the footway on the new road, although it is not too difficult to walk across the grass.

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. However, the level crossing kissing gates remain.

A Commonwealth Games Legacy Glasgow 2014 cycle parking stand at the Bo'ness railway station.

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