Milngavie is a town in the valley of the River Allander which is known for being the starting point of the West Highland Way.
Milngavie (pronounced ‘mill-guy’) has a population of around 14,000 and is known for being the starting point of the West Highland Way, Scotland’s first long-distance walking route. The pedestrianised town centre is known locally as ‘Milngavie Precinct’ and has a range of shops and restaurants as well as a local bookshop. Milngavie serves as a dormitory town for Glasgow and nearby Mugdock Country Park offers some good woodland walks.
Remains of the town's beginnings as a pre-nineteenth century village can be found in the Corbie Ha' meeting hall, Cross Keys Pub and Gavin's Mill watermill. The town has its own train station which has regular services to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Lanark and Motherwell, while buses run to Glasgow and Kirkintilloch which are both just a short drive away.
