Walking & Cycling Route - South Airdrie Path Network
Suitable for walkers and cyclists
The path surfaces make walking and cycling relatively easy. The Network includes the five-mile long circular South Airdrie Cycle Route.
The route is in a loop that can be joined at different points. It includes a section between Sikeside and Cairnhill along National Cycle Route 75 and shares part of the North Calder Heritage Trail between Brownsburn and Calderbank in the south.
Parts of the Network have steep gradients, whilst gentler gradients are found along the Monkland Canal and between Calderbank Road and Cairnhill Road.
The North Lanarkshire park ranger service also organises local walks, often with a heritage or wildlife theme. For details call either (01236) 780636 or (01698) 266155. For details of walks and excursions run by local walking groups contact:
