Our next health walk will go to Sighthill Stone Circle

Meeting point

When: Saturday 9th March, 2pm

Where: Queen Margaret Bridge at the top of Queen Margaret Road (directly across from our noticeboard)

About the walk

How long: The walk is 4.7 miles (7.56 km). This is a bit longer than previous walks and so will take longer than the usual hour or so.

This is a great chance to enjoy our surroundings and meet people, old and new!

Road conditions

We have to cross Maryhill Road and St George’s Road, but both have controlled crossings. We walk alongside roads with traffic, but these are fairly quiet. Surfaces are generally good. We also walk alongside the canal for two short sections.


From the meeting point we’ll go via Queen Margaret Road, Doune Quadrant, Doune Gardens and Striven Gardens and then make a right turn down the section of Garriochmill Road which goes to North Woodside Road.

We will turn left and continue along North Woodside Road to Braid Square. Just before the nursery school we turn right to join the footpath which runs alongside Abercorn School leading to a footbridge over Garscube Road.

Then we head towards Civic House, turn right and then go up the path or steps. We will not go up to Speirs Wharf but will continue straight ahead along the canal basin and up the path to Craighall Road.

We cross at the lights and continue along North Canal Bank and then cross at the wooden bridge just before the paddlesports centre. We pass the old barge (on dry land) and walk along the side of the canal to the start of Sighthill Village. We follow the path which bears slightly right then curves left to walk alongside the motorway.

We pass the new “Rusty” Bridge and continue to the Stone Circle. We return via the same route.
