A sign for a cycle route to Lanark, but without a destination. There is no longer a corresponding sign on the other side of the road, just signage for NCN74.

Compared to the shared footway on other side of the road, the end of the purpose built cycleway looks over-engineered. It could also do with a sweep.

Since the NCN74 cycleway is separated from the road by a decent sized verge, there is no question of roadsigns blocking the cycleway.

NCN74 alongside the B7078 (the old A74) where the former dual carriageway has been converted into a single carriageway road and a decent cycleway.

There's a 'give way' at each field access, but there's little chance you'll actually need to give way to anything. The new kerbs appear to be stuck onto the carriageway and have come adrift in some places.

After a rubbish detour around Lesmahagow, the cycle route becomes rather good again! The former dual carriageway has been converted into a single carriageway road and a decent cycle path.

The cycle route south of Blackwood starts off as a shared footway, but then it changes into a proper cycleway.
