Signage for the Springburn Quietway, but no dropped kerb to join the carriageway from the adjacent path. Not so easy to bump a kerb having come up a steep hill. A connection could be formed with Hawthorn Street here.

Diversion signage for the Stockingfield canal path closure at the junction of Contin Place and Garrioch Road. The route goes via Shakespeare Street, which can be seen in the background, beyond the round building.

Diversion signage for the Stockingfield canal path closure on Contin Place.

Diversion signage for the Stockingfield canal path closure at Southmuir Place.

Diversion signage for the Stockingfield canal path closure. The signs have been fixed quite low down the pole.

Route signs and temporary diversion signs for the Stockingfield canal towpath closure. Lots of leaves are rotting away, awaiting being swept off the Kelvin Walkway.

Signage relating to the Stockingfield Junction canal towpath closure for construction of a new bridge.

Permanent route signs and temporary diversion signs relating to the Stockingfield canal path closure, but who would know? The temporary diversion signs should be yellow. The canal towpath is open up to Stockingfield Junction, but only to ... [more]

Diversion signage for the Stockingfield canal path closure. The sign should be yellow. The diversion for city centre is rather lengthy from this direction, and those with local knowledge may be better going via Glenfinnan Road instead. The ... [more]

I was surprised to see this Scottish Canals branded route sign after the turn for Shakespeare Street, but it turns out it is part of a signed diversion due to the Stockingfield canal path closure, so it should be yellow. The diversion appro ... [more]

Despite the council providing cycle signage at the canal access path at Campbell Street, the nearest dropped kerb is someone's driveway.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane at the turn-off for the canal path. Since the cycle lane stops at Lincoln Avenue, this is where many will leave it for the longer route to town along the canal path. The sign is obscured by tree bran ... [more]

Nothing to warn NCN756 and West City Way users that there is a locked gate preventing egress from Kelvingrove Park ahead, and that the nearest way out is onto Kelvingrove Street to the right.

A rather inconspicuous diversion sign for the SECC covered walkway closure, facing the wrong way.

I was surprised to find this direction sign for HMNB Clyde, Faslane, at this location.

A damaged route sign for the cycle route to the City Centre, but the route is closed off due to the Sighthill regeneration project a short distance away.

The Seven Lochs Trail joins Commonhead Road.

The end of the loop to the viewpoint. See also #113014.

The sign points to a viewpoint, but the more direct route is to the right. See also #113015.

One of the signs is clearly not pointing the right way, and the surface is poor, but the path behind the camera is being rebuilt (see #113011).

A cross-roads of paths, where the Seven Lochs Trail turns left.

The road crossing at Lochend Road could be better.

An entrance to the Bishop Loch section of the Seven Lochs Trail at Auchingill Road.

A signpost on the Seven Lochs Trail, where the path ahead leads over to Gartloch.

Marker posts on the Seven Lochs Trail.

A signpost for the Seven Loch Trail at Easterhouse.

A sign for the Seven Lochs Trail in the woods at Easterhouse.

Marker posts guide the way along the Seven Lochs Trail around Easterhouse.

A sign for the Seven Lochs Trail on Gartloch Road. I hadn't noticed any other signs since leaving Cardowan Moss, and although I know my way around here, there is potential for people to get lost in the Tillycairn Road area.

Marker posts guide the way along the Seven Lochs Trail in Cardowan Moss. Although this one has lost its badge, the location of the other post around the corner, and the lack of another post straight ahead, mark the turn.

A signpost on the Seven Lochs Trail in Cardowan Moss.

Marker posts guide the way along the Seven Lochs Trail in Cardowan Moss.

Route signs for the Seven Lochs Trail at Avenue End Road. The path connection across the other side is not so great, but the signs point the way into Hogganfield Park.

Route signs for the Seven Lochs Trail at Avenue End Road.

The end of the shared footway on Saughs Avenue. But since there is a shared footway across the toucan crossing, there is really no need for the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign. However, the shared footway is far too narrow.

A tiny sign giving some cycling directions on Ashfield Street.

Just as I was about to leave Victoria Park, I noticed this bollard emblazoned "Park Cycle Route End".

Pedantic signage for the Clyde Tunnel northbound entrance and southbound exit. Why sign the exit from here?

A route sign for NCN7/75 on Linthaugh Road, and cycle only access on Dormanside Road.

A route sign for NCN7/NCN75, and council signs for the local path network.

Signage for the Cardonald Quietway on the right-hand side of Linthaugh Road, but not very easy to read from the left-hand carriageway (which, since the footway is not shared-use, is where approaching cyclists should be). Quite frankly, t ... [more]

Signs at the point where the main path goes beneath the Crookston Road bridge, including a sign for the alternative route in case of flooding on the main path.

The White Cart path meets Crookston Road. The signs have vanished from the signpost.

Signs at the junction of NCN7/75 and the riverside path in Rosshall Park.

A complete lack of signage at the turn in the Glasgow-Paisley cycle route, although the route ahead links to the same place if you know where you are going.

A complete lack of signage, save for some dilapidated Sustrans stickers, at the left turn into Rosshall Park.

Allanton Drive is on the Govan-Cardonald Quietway, but which way do you turn at the next junction? The sign with the tiny writing at the junction (visible over the rear end of the van) says, but it can't be read when you need to select your ... [more]

Faded route signs pointing in random directions.

The Kelvin Walkway diversion via Contin Place. Still no dropped kerb at the start of the path to Wyndford Drive.

Diversion signed with blue (permanent) rather than yellow NCN stickers. And still no dropped kerb at the start of the path to Contin Place.

The Cycle Quietway through Knightswood links the Orca cycle routes on Dyke Road and Lincoln Avenue without going along Alderman Road. The entrance to the Lincoln Avenue cycle track is rather cluttered and the cycle track itself can barel ... [more]

Signage for the Cycle Quietway through Knightswood on Loanfoot Avenue, but it's shorter, quicker and on roads just as quiet to head to the Forth & Clyde Canal along Loanfoot Avenue in the opposite direction.

Signage for the Cycle Quietway through Knightswood at Riglaw Place, but it's shorter, quicker and also just as quiet to get to the Forth & Clyde Canal via Commore Drive to the left.

'Recommended route for cyclists' signage for the old signed route between Kelso Street and Garscadden railway station.

A Cycle Quietway has been signed through Knightswood, but doesn't use the newly widened and converted shared-use footway on Dyke Road.

Signage for the Cycle Quietway through Knightswood, at the junction of Kirkton Avenue and Holehouse Drive, with another sign pointing to Garscadden railway station in the background.

A route sign for the Cycle Quietway through Knightswood on Kirkton Avenue.

A "Cycle Quietway" has been signed through Knightswood, crossing Alderman Road here at Commore Drive. Again the buffer strip between the car parking bay and the cycle lane does not allow sufficient space for a car to be parked between th ... [more]

Signage for an on-road section of the Garscadden Way on Lillyburn Place.

Signage for the Drumchapel Way, and above it, what appears to be the last remaining directional signage for the Garscadden Way.

An information board for the Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way and Drumchapel Way.

The Drumchapel Way on The Antonine Road.

The Drumchapel Way meets The Antonine Road. Glasgow City Council's GIS system shows a path (called Drumry Wood) across the site across the road, even though it is securely fenced off.

The Drumchapel Way leaves Halgreen Avenue and takes the steps up to The Antonine Road. There is a bypass ramp, but no dropped kerb at the end for anyone following the route by bike.

Signage for the Drumchapel Way on Halgreen Avenue.

There were no signs for the Drumchapel Way at the junctions at either end of Hecla Avenue, only this one midway along the street.

The Drumchapel Way marker post and information board for those coming from Kinfauns Drive.

Next the Drumchapel Way goes up some shallow steps as it starts to head towards Kinfauns Drive.

The Drumchapel Way continues down some very shallow steps to a bridge across the Garscadden Burn.

A close-up of the marker post that is not for the Drumchapel Way (from #107167). Leg-it around Drumchapel.

Three marker posts, but only two are for the Drumchapel Way, so turn right.

Navigation on the off-road sections of the Drumchapel Way is by marker post. Here the posts indicate a turn to the right.

On-road sections of the Drumchapel Way are indicated by small circular signs attached to lampposts.

The Drumchapel Way turns left to join with the Garscadden Way. The Drumchapel Way is a walking route around Drumchapel and the surrounding woodland described at https://forestryandland.gov.scot/images/pdf/rec_pdfs/DrumchapelWoodsLeaflet.pdf

A very old blue-bordered cycle route sign on Broomhill Drive. There are no further signs on this route because it is the last in a series of signs for various destinations around the Clydeside Expressway's Clyde Tunnel junction, including a ... [more]

New and old route signs at Broomhill Drive.

A shared footway in Victoria Park Drive South, and signage for local destinations.

Different styles of sign on the Primrose Street off-ramp from the Loch Lomond railway path.

The Balmoral Street off-ramp from the Loch Lomond railway path. The first time I've seen a postal district on a cycle route sign.

The sign on the right gives destinations and distances, but does not have an arrow, so is effectively a route confirmation sign of the type that should be provided after a junction, not before it. The destinations can be reached by turni ... [more]

A route sign not pointing the correct way to the Forth & Clyde Canal. And if that's a cycle parking stand, it may be better positioned in front of the shops, not at the rear. On the plus side, a dropped kerb has been installed since #332 ... [more]

One route sign has two poles and is pointing the right way, but one of the signs sharing lamppost is pointing the wrong way. Plus a rather messy path junction.

Route signs pointing in various directions, facing people coming from the Forth & Clyde Canal at Blairdardie. Wheelchair users appear to have been forgotten about in the signs pointing to the unnamed railway station (Drumchapel).

The route to the canal is signed along the narrow path to the left, to bypass the roundabout.

Signs for getting to Drumchapel station by different modes. Wheelchair users should ignore the directions given here if going to the eastbound platform, since the footbridge at the station is stepped. There are no cycle facilities on the ro ... [more]

The sign in #100506 facing the wrong way and a sign for the westbound platform at an unnamed railway station. The direction to the eastbound platform is different and the sign for it is visible in the distance.

A damaged sign facing the wrong way.

The cycle route directions from Drumchapel station to the Forth & Clyde Canal are different from the pedestrian and wheelchair user directions.

For some reason there is a signed cycle route between the Forth & Clyde Canal at Blairdardie and Drumchapel railway station.

Is Bowling over the bridge? No.

A sign for the Forth & Clyde Canal pointing the wrong way, and 'No Through Road' signs on the road that leads there, without 'except cycles' plates.

A pole minus its signs. Now just Sustrans stickers.

Signs pointing in random directions on the path linking the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to Duntreath Avenue and Great Western Road.

A signed link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but unsurfaced and overgrown. Not the same link as shown in #100262.

Directions for anyone getting over the locked gate in #99820, but why no directions for the route to the left, which leads to Baillieston and Glasgow?

A junction between a section of cyclepath alongside the M8 motorway and Bredisholm Road coming off its bridge over the motorway and A8 dual carriageway. If the intent was that cyclists would go to Bargeddie (and not straight ahead to Bailli ... [more]

Brand Street approaching the turn into Harvie Street. But how is anyone meant to know to turn onto the shared footway rather than the carriageway at the junction?

A route sign for the spur from the Glasgow-Cumbernauld cycle route to the Colleges cycle route facing the wrong way. In the background, the anonymous ramp to the North Hanover Street shared footway (see also #98888).

Signage for the cycle parking at the People's Palace.

Now that the riverside path has reopened, I notice a sign for NCN75 pointing up the old diversion around the former Polmadie Bridge, and now that path has shut for work on the old bridge piers.
