Due to forestry operations the walkers route through the Kilpatrick Hills will be temporarily diverted from 30 January 2017. John Muir Way users walking between Balloch and Strathblane should divert along the cyclists braid. The route up to and round Burncrooks reservoir is not affected. A map of the diversion is available here. It is anticipated that the diversion will be in place for five weeks until 3 March 2017.
We will update the website news section and the John Muir Way Facebook page when the diversion comes into place, and also when the section reopens.
