Help connect Strathblane

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 Strathblane’s Slow Ways.

Unfortunately, within half a kilometre of setting off, I found the way blocked by a high fence and locked gate (see photographs). I managed to find a work-around quite easily and have incorporated this into an alternative route (Strmil two)....
