The Kelvin Walkway connects Milngavie with the Glasgow Heliport
 on the north bank of the River Clyde.

 The walkway follows the Allander Water for 2 miles ( 3km )
 southeast from 
Milngavie to join the River Kelvin.

 The route then turns southwest leaving the Kelvin south through Summerston

 ( - see map below - no signposts! )

 The walkway rejoins the river on the outskirts of Maryhill
and proceeds south through Kelvinside,
 Kelvingrove Park and Yorkhill to reach the Clyde.

A total distance of  some 9 miles ( 14.5km ) is covered.

Garscube Bridge over the Kelvin River at Killermont
 This bridge over the river Kelvin replaced the earlier narrow, hump-backed Garscube Bridge,
It was widened in cast-iron in the 1850s to carry water mains from Mugdock Reservoir to Glasgow.
 The new bridge was designed to carry the water mains and also a double line of tram tracks to Milngavie.
