Path through the woods
Path through the woods
Several lesser paths branch off at various points, leading through Renton Wood (on the left, i.e., south of the path) and Craigandro Wood (on the other side), but this is the main ascending path, apparently following the old road.

The present view is uphill, from the lower end of the wooded section; see NS3878 : Path through the woods for a corresponding view downhill from the upper end.
Remains of a road
An old road ascended the slopes to the west of Renton and passed the southern end of Carman Loch (as it was known before it became a reservoir). A path ascending through the woods is part of the old road, but the most visible remains are on the flat muir to the south-east of the reservoir, where the road is bounded by two parallel gorse-bearing ridges spaced about 14 metres apart. See LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view with marker pins on the line of the road.
