Walking, cycling and horse riding routes

South Lanarkshire is a diverse place to explore with paths and trails through town and countryside – in woodland, along river gorges and across hills.  There are plenty of places to investigate and enjoy from Cathkin Braes and Cuningar Woodland Park in the north (Rutherglen) to the Southern Upland Way in the south of Clydesdale. The Clyde Walkway is a 65km riverside path which will take you from the centre of Glasgow to the Falls of Clyde at New Lanark.  

Please see information on our Cycling Strategy 2015-2020, Routes around South Lanarkshire,  East Kilbride cycle network, health walks , Pentland Hills information and our local trails:

You can cycle from South Lanarkshire to many visitor attractions including the Whitelee wind farm in East Ayrshire via Strathaven and Ardochrigg.
