Back o' Loch Halt, Kirkintilloch
Back o' Loch Halt, Kirkintilloch
Picture taken from the trackbed, looking south to Lenzie, this was Kirkintilloch's rail connection to the outside world, and through the arch was one of Kirkintilloch's TWO railway stations, this halt - "Back o' Loch", and the main station for the town was 0.75km further north. The line left the main Glasgow to Edinburgh route just east of Lenzie station, and headed northwards to Kirkintilloch and the Campsie valley (Lennoxtown, Strathblane & Blanefield). A junction at Whitegates provided a spur to the Forth & Clyde canal for the shipment of coal at Middlemuir Basin (now infilled).

The bridge is scheduled for demolition as it is in the way of the new Kirkintilloch 'Link Road' which will use much of the railway's southern alignment to Lenzie and onwards to an extended M80 motorway at Muirhead.
