Footpath to Dumbarton
Footpath to Dumbarton
(For a later and better version of this view, see NS4077 : The start of a path.)

The short section of path shown here leads to a gate (just visible in this picture). On the other side of the gate, the track continues in the same direction (west). However, from the gate, a footpath branches off to the southwest; this path is signposted as leading to Dumbarton.

At the time of writing, that footpath could still be followed to the point where the dual carriageway crosses the River Leven (i.e. to the far side of the bridge shown here: NS3977 : The Blue Bridge). However, construction work was then taking place alongside other parts of the footpath to Dumbarton, namely, the parts that are shown here (pre-construction): NS3976 : Footpath on eastern bank of the River Leven, NS3976 : River Leven footpath.
Lion's Gate to Dumbarton Rock :: NS3976
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 ( 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 ( 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 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.
