*Diversion no longer in place*
Due to forestry operations the route through the Kilpatrick Hills is tempoarily diverted. John Muir Way users heading between Ballcoh 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 http://johnmuirway.org/file/merkins-public-accessjpg#overlay-context=users/snh . It is anticipated that the diversion will be in place until the end of July.
