A path in Malls Mire nature reservce, looking towards the council boundary. It is possible to get across into Rutherglen here, but there's a short section of steep path here.

A steep ramp down to the passageway under the railway and linking to Drossie Road and the opposite side of Falkirk High station. The path to the right leads to the nearside platform. There appears to be more than enough room behind the … [more]
