Information for cyclists

 

National Cycle Network route 7The national Lochs and Glens (North) cycling route (route 7) that goes from Glasgow to Inverness just misses the village by around 3 miles. It’s easy to join, all you need to do is cycle down Gartness Road. For more information on the entire route, see the Sustrans website at: www.sustrans.org.uk/what-we-do/national-cycle-network/long-distance-rides/scotland/lochs-and-glens-north.

Killearn can also be used as a convenient starting point for some half-day/full-day cycling trips.  Why not park your car in the village and start one of the following trips.
