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.

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

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.

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.

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath near the Falkirk Wheel, but which cycle route is it that ends here? NCN754 continues to Clydebank. The ramp to the right leads to the Falkirk Wheel North Car Park.

The HArTT cycle route goes down this steep slope to the Union Canal (see #101156). A new sensibly graded ramp has been built to the right (see #101153).

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.

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]

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 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.

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]

Really not the end of the cycle route, which continues across the road crossing. If there were special regulations like on a motorway an 'end of cycle path regulations' sign would be appropriate, but it isn't like that.

With all these 'End of Cycle Route' signs, it is difficult to tell where the HArTT route continues!

A partially hidden marker post for the HArTT cycle route. You ain't gonna see that from the road!

Signs for the HArTT cycle route at Polmont Road.

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).

'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 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!

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.

NCN76 goes from Park Road into Zetland Park.

The hilly road to Bo'ness.

You couldn't make it up! The A905/A904 road to Bo'ness is as flat as a pancake but NCN76 takes a hilly route via Inveravon and Kinneil Estate.

Falkirk Council has installed dozens of these End of Cycle Route signs around its patch, and like many of the others, this one is also not at the end of a cycle route.

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

The HArTT cycle route turns left here at Beancross to go to the Helix park, but to the right is a glaringly obvious gap in the cycle network, through the Cadgers Brae Roundabout to Grangemouth.

The HArTT cycle route goes through the underpass beneath the A9 at Beancross.

Yet another 'End of Cycle Route' sign! The HArTT cycle route continues through the underpass beneath the A9 and then on to the Helix park.

Helix signage with a HArTT badge at Mumrills Road.

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

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

A T-junction in Callendar Woods, with a yellow marker post.

A yellow marker post in Callendar Woods.

Working from the map on the Falkirk Helix website, I've decided this must be the junction where the HArTT cycle route turns in all directions, in order to do a loop around Callendar Park in addition to the woods. However, only the yellow wa ... [more]

A crossroads of paths in Callendar Woods, and just a solitary marker post for the John Muir Way. Nothing for the HArTT cycle route.

A 3-way junction in Callendar Woods. As this is meant to be on the HArTT cycle route, I'd expect some sort of route information. The post on the right is for a circular walking/jogging route around the woods from Callendar Park.

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]

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 way to avoid the steps at #101523 is to take the A9 road bridge across the railway, and the HArTT cycle route appears to do just that. However, there is no evidence that the narrow footway is legal for shared use, and the provision ... [more]

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.

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.

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.

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

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 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 marker post for the HArTT cycle route entering Callendar Woods. The asphalt comes to an end.

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]

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]

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 on the John Muir Way at Kinneil Halt.

A waymarker post approaching a junction on the John Muir Way.

Signs and a waymarker post on the John Muir Way.

A destination sign facing the wrong way in Stewart Avenue.

A good and a bad National Cycle Network direction sign on NCN76. Kinda useless to sign in both directions but not say where it'll take you.
