Head south out of Eaglesham and left following the road to Strathaven passing Millhall, previously site of Polnoon mill and dam. Right at the T-junction [2.5mi] and follow the signs to Auldhouse. Left after entering the village along Auldhouse Rd. After double bend in the road left and left again alongside the ever expanding boundary of East Kilbride. Follow the sign right to Jackton then left at the T junction and right shortly after into Hayhill Rd. Then left into Peel Rd, under the Glasgow southern Orbital, and first left towards Eaglesham. Where the road forks bear right, then left at T-junction down across the White Cart to the crossroads. Turn left. The climb from here is 450ft – alternative route straight back to Eaglesham.
Otherwise right into Floors Rd past the rear entrance to Linn Products on left and the site of Rudolf Hess’ 1941 landing on right. Left under Southern Orbital and follow sign to Bonnyton, uphill and eventually passing the long 5th hole of Bonnyton golf course. Enjoy the view at the top and then the run back down to Eaglesham.
