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 to head south through Summerston

 ( - see map below - there are no signposts! )

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

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

Dawsholm Park consists mainly of policy and plantation woodland
 and is important for the typical woodland bird species this habitat supports.
 Grassland to the south is grazed by highland cattle to encourage wild flowers
 and a pond is home to waterbirds.
The northern boundary is the River Kelvin where Kingfishers can be seen.
 Roe Deer, Red Fox and Grey Squirrel are regularly seen
 and over 30 species of bird and ten of butterfly have been recorded.
