The Granite Steps, Glasgow

This is one of the only access points to the cycleway and it is absolutely useless. It is extremely hard to get a bicycle down these steps. A ramp is needed.

The West Highland Way at steps to Milngavie community centre and library. The path is a bit muddy here.

I was looking for the steps marked on the WHW on OpenStreetMap (which didn't appear to exist), but found these steps instead next to the library. As I was on the bike, I didn't go up them to find out where they led.

The former NCN7 route at Pointhouse Road and the footbridge with steps over the Clydeside Expressway still form useful parts of the cycle network to differing degrees.
