Help connect Biggar

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Biggar’s Slow Ways.

Nice route with some minor alterations available to make the road crossings safer....

Walk this route

Keeping the Clyde to your right, walk through the New Lanark World Heritage Site to rejoin Clyde path through archway running alongside the river (there is an alternative path through woodland higher up the valley side). At Carmichael the Slow ways route carries straight over the crossroads (signposted no through road) past the school and becomes a private road, then on past a derelict old mansion. On the Slow ways route continue to meet the A73 at a rather dangerous crossing because the busy fast road is on a blind bend. An alternative route at Carmichael crossroads is to turn right and continue along the signposted cycle route. Go straight ahead into Thankerton to meet up with the Slow ways route again....
