SM25- Cairnhill to Hillhead Roundabout

This path is currently closed due to construction of a new school.

This path began in a lane at Cairnhill Industrial Estate. There was no sign here, nor any indication that it was a right of way. The path was tarmac and ran south for 160m, where it joins the wider NCN 75.

It continues south east for 190m to a Y junction, where the right fork should be taken. After another 70m a path is crossed at right angles, the main path continuing south towards the B802.

New gates fitted along the route

After 60m a worn path leads off to the east (left) across the grass. It goes across rough ground for 170m, where it joins an ash path.
