Entrance to Heritage Path
The small rectangular sign reads;
"Heritage Path
River Kelvin Walkway
The walkway follows an old mineral
railway which formed part of an extensive
system of lines that connected the
Twechar pits, Dumbreck pit, Kilsyth,
Auchinstarry quarry and several gravel pits.
Small railway engines called pugs hauled
trains of tubs containing coal, ironstone,
mine waste, quarry stone, coke and gravel.
Built in stages from the 1860's it was used
until the 1960's."
