NS5379 : West Highland Way at Easter Carbeth

taken 5 years ago, near to Netherton, Stirling, Great Britain

West Highland Way at Easter Carbeth
West Highland Way at Easter Carbeth
The West Highland Way and the John Muir Way coincide in this area; there is a small purple-and-white marker for the John Muir Way on the upper part of the signpost.

Both routes follow a path southwards up to this gate, where they meet the main road(*). They then turn left, following the road eastwards for a distance of about 300 metres: see NS5379 : West Highland Way at Easter Carbeth, taken beside the same gate. The routes then leave the road again at NS5379 : Ballachalairy Yett, near which point the John Muir Way and the West Highland Way separate: NS5379 : John Muir Way and West Highland Way.

In this view, the buildings of Easter Carbeth Farm can be seen across the road. For a view in the opposite direction, looking across this gate from the other side, see NS5379 : West Highland Way at Easter Carbeth.

(*) At the time of writing, large-scale OS mapping calls this part of the road Ballachalairy Yett. I believe this to be a mistake. Early OS maps employed the name correctly (NS5379 : Ballachalairy Yett), but at some point since then, someone, most likely not knowing that "yett" is Scots for "gate", has misunderstood the name as applying to the road.
