NS7750 : The Monkey Road

taken 14 years ago, near to Larkhall, South Lanarkshire, Great Britain

The Monkey Road
The Monkey Road
This route is signposted, at its southern end (where it leaves Burnhead Road) as '"Monkey Road" to Lanark Road'; the photo was taken not far from the wooden signpost.

The route is about 1.85 kilometres long, with a straight-line distance of about 1.57 kilometres, and passes Millburn Cottage and Skellyton Farm (NS7851 : Approaching Skellyton Farm); at its northern end, it meets Lanark Road at a point not far from a garden centre (NS7851 : Anderson's Garden Centre).

The tower blocks in the background are in Motherwell; my thanks to fellow Geograph contributor G Laird ( LinkExternal link ), who informs me that the wide tower block visible in the background, in the left-hand half of the photo, is Glencairn Tower.
