This short film (10 mins) offers an overview of an off-road route north of Glasgow. It can be walked, run or mountain biked.

Start on the West Highland Way at Milngavie, then head on to the John Muir Way near Carbeth, to reach Burncrooks Reservoir in the Kilpatrick Hills.

I ran a circuit of the reservoir but you could walk or ride it.

Here are a few photos to whet your appetite:
