Start of a circular path
Start of a circular path
When this picture was taken, the path had only recently been laid out. The land, now the property of the Woodland Trust (Scotland) has been called Lang Craigs Woodland. For a view back towards the gate from a little further along the path, see the "next" link, below.

The land is owned by the Woodland Trust (Scotland), rather than by the residents of the nearby houses. The newly laid out path is for walkers to use; in fact, it is one of the local council's core paths (as is the route leading here from Garshake Road). Any person who experiences problems in connection with any of the council's core paths should take the matter up with the council's Access Officer; see LinkExternal link for details.
From Garshake Road to Square Wood
This route is one of West Dunbartonshire's core paths. It starts at the top of Garshake Road. Note that only pictures taken from mid-2014 onward accurately reflect the current situation near Maryland Farm, showing the paths for walkers that were built there when the land became part of Lang Craigs Woodland; earlier pictures show, instead, an improvised but (at that time) officially approved route that served until then, and which led around the margins of a field.
Lang Craigs Woodland :: NS4377
The woodland occupies 240 hectares (590 acres) that were acquired by the Woodland Trust Scotland in 2011. It is named after the Lang Craigs, a line of cliffs making up the facade of the Kilpatrick Hills plateau. Lang Craigs Woodland is one of the 13 Commonwealth Woods, and is an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). New paths have been laid out (waymarkers were added in May 2015), and about 160 hectares of new native woodland planted.
