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

A barrier at the Cumbernauld Road bridge and crossing on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but no asphalt for the bypass gap.

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 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.

An access ramp and a barrier (with a BMX style bypass) on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

Signs for destinations on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath. A steep path next to the ruin leads down to Donald's Quay and to a path from there to The Saltings nature reserve.

The Forth & Clyde Canal towpath is now in a reasonable shape, but the path to Beardmore Street only gets worse as it goes on!

Access to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath over the lifting bridge at Farm Road.

A choice of routes to Glasgow, and a map. It just needs a 'You Are Here' arrow.

The cycle counter in Clydebank hasn't been working the last few times I've passed.

Canalside signage in Clydebank.

I've never worked out if these strips are badly installed drainage (for the boggy grass to the right), or anti-cycling rumble strips. A swimming contest can be seen in the background.

There is an unmarked speed hump either side of the Cleveden Road bridge on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, which are quite hard to spot if you don't know they are there.

A connection between Netherton Road and the Forth & Clyde Canal, with damaged sign, mud, and a chicane barrier.

A barrier on the track up to the Union Canal.

The path connecting the Forth & Clyde Canal to Netherton Road next to the David Lloyd centre is in a very poor condition, not just a poor and narrow surface but quite overgrown too.

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.

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]

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

New cycle parking in a new car park for Falkirk High station. But 'Cyclists Dismount' on the ramp down to the Union Canal. See also #101153.

A barrier guarding the steep access ramp down to the Union Canal towpath (see #101129) but rather awkward to get even a standard bike through.

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.

A barrier hindering access to the National Cycle Network, near the Kelvin Aqueduct.

A route sign not pointing the correct way to the Forth & Clyde Canal. And if that's a cycle parking stand, it may be better positioned in front of the shops, not at the rear. On the plus side, a dropped kerb has been installed since #332 ... [more]

One route sign has two poles and is pointing the right way, but one of the signs sharing lamppost is pointing the wrong way. Plus a rather messy path junction.

No actual kerb separating the carriageway and path to the canal, making for a smoother transition.

Is Bowling over the bridge? No.

A sign for the Forth & Clyde Canal pointing the wrong way, and 'No Through Road' signs on the road that leads there, without 'except cycles' plates.

A pole minus its signs. Now just Sustrans stickers.

A gate with gaps both sides protecting the access path from Great Western Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath. The curved walls are similar to gateways created at a number of cycle path accesses around Glasgow.

A gate at the end of the path from the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at Great Western Road, with gaps both sides, but only access to the footway and westbound carriageway.

Signs pointing in random directions on the path linking the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to Duntreath Avenue and Great Western Road.

A path linking the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to Duntreath Avenue.

A poor surface on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath between Yoker and Whitecrook.

A poor surface on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at Whitecrook.

A very poor access ramp between the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath and Glendinning Road.

Neither signed canal access paths (or the path to the continued Netherton Road) has dropped kerbs.

No dropped kerb at the entrance to a signed path linking Netherton Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

A signed link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but unsurfaced and overgrown. Not the same link as shown in #100262.

An unsurfaced link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath from the end of a residential part of Netherton Road. See also #100261.

A canal towpath access path, unsigned, and comprising just a dirt path. Why is this not surfaced to the same standard as the main path?
