NS3976 : Footpath beside the River Leven

taken 8 years ago, near to Dumbarton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Footpath beside the River Leven
Footpath beside the River Leven
To the left of the path is one of the areas of marshland that can be found alongside the lower reaches of the river. To the right is the north-western corner of Broadmeadow Industrial Estate.

A signpost is just visible near the centre of the image. Although the main footpath continues alongside the river, another path branches off to the right at that point. The sign there indicates the following three paths:

● "Dumbarton Town Centre / mile" (back, towards photographer's position),
● "Vale of Leven Industrial Estate / 1 miles" (ahead), and
● "Overburn Avenue / 500 yards" (to the right).

For views from the signpost and footpath junction, looking in these three directions, see, respectively, NS3976 : Footpath beside the River Leven, NS3976 : Footpath beside the River Leven, and NS3976 : Footpath to Overburn Avenue.
Lion's Gate to Dumbarton Rock
This description covers a subset of West Dumbartonshire's core paths (4953 inclusive and 157) that, when taken together, make up a continuous path (49 + 50 + 52 + 53) along or near the eastern bank of the River Leven ( LinkExternal link ), beginning at the Lion's Gate at Kilmalid, and ending at Dumbarton Rock(*). Two shorter paths (51 and 157) branch off from the riverside path. Others paths branch off from it near the SUDS pond at Lomondgate ( LinkExternal link ); these are also included here, although they are not core paths.

(*) Note that, as of mid-2018, core path 53 stops at the east end of Riverside Lane, but it is intended that it eventually be extended to become a riverside walkway to Dumbarton Rock.

See LinkExternal link (PDF, 1.3MB, at the West Dunbartonshire Council website) for a visual index to all of these paths. Summary descriptions (where "BMIE" = Broadmeadow Industrial Estate and "CP" = Core Path):

CP 49 (741m): Beside the Murroch Burn; from the Lion's Gate to the Blue Bridge.
CP 50 (1019m): Heads south (beside a golf course) from the Blue Bridge to NW corner of BMIE.
CP 51 (440m): Branches off eastwards from CP 50; leads to Overburn Avenue.
CP 52 (849m): Heads south from NW corner of BMIE to Dumbarton Bridge.
CP 157 (84m): A short path branching off east from CP 52; leads to Poplar Road.
CP 53 (476m+): From Dumbarton Bridge to Riverside Lane (and, later, to Dumbarton Rock).
