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 )

 to join the River Kelvin.

 The route then turns southwest leaving the Kelvin to strike south through Summerston

 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.
