This is a welcome cycle track as it gets one off the A 82,Scotland'most dangerous road. The views of the Loch are of course Would famous with justification. The pathway follows the old A 82 of yesteryear and as such is very close to the...More

Often cycle from old Kilpatrick to Balloch and some areas of path are covered in broken glass and dogs not on leads with no owner control.
