Route description

This is an out and back route from Kelvingrove Park to the Botanic Gardens.

Start at the entrance to the park on Kelvinway near to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, running past the skate park and following the path along the River Kelvin. Depending on the time of day, you might pass a few of the locals and their dugs enjoying a pint in Inn Deep then continue under the bridge, round the narrow path and you’ll reach the remains of the North Woodside Flint Mill. Continue on past the Ha’Penny bridge, crossing the next bridge you come to on your left to loop back the way you came. This is a nice run but take care as the path can get busy with dog walkers, cyclists and other runners.
