Upgraded pathway at Lovers Lane

Improving Pathways

The stretch of new pathway at Lovers’ Lane has been successfully completed. 

At this location:

Work to upgrade the footpaths around Milngavie Reservoirs got underway on Monday 14 August, 2023, with listed building consent secured from East Dunbartonshire Council.

Lovers' Lane and the section on the opposite side of Mugdock Reservoir – a stretch which runs along the side of Mugdock Road, at the end nearest to Mugdock Causeway - have been successfully completed, although we will be returning to Lovers' Lane at the end of the project for some remedial work.

From Monday 19 February 2024 work to upgrade the footpaths around Craigmaddie Reservoir begins. The footpaths will be closed to the public between the James M Gale Memorial around to the Measuring Pond. The access gate on Strathblane Road (adjacent to North Lodge) will also be closed.

This section is expected to be completed by the end of April.

Craigmaddie Footpaths Upgrade

There is no public access around Craigmaddie Reservoir while the section marked in red is upgraded.

To help minimise disruption the improvement work is being carried out in phases and on a rolling-basis around the reservoirs. The reservoirs are very much ‘open for business’ during these works, however, we need to close off the sections of paths we’re working on both for health and safety reasons and for good progress to be made. 

Once the pathways around Mugdock Reservoir have been successfully upgraded, attention will then turn to improving the paths around Craigmaddie Reservoir. 

Environmental benefits will be achieved through the use of a responsibly sourced, recycled footpath product called ‘Ultitrec’ to improve the main walking routes around Mugdock and Craigmaddie reservoirs. 

This sustainable and innovative material from Tarmac will help reduce waste and conserve scarce primary aggregates.
