Route 9: Windfarm Spine Road

A cycle along the length of the windfarm.

Head up Montgomery St out of Eaglesham on the B764 Moor road. Spine Rd starts 1/2mile after the visitor centre and following this route passes the Covenanter memorial on the right with a small museum in the adjacent Lochgoin farmhouse. However entering the windfarm at the visitor centre provides a more interesting cycle with better views. At the first turbine[40] go left in the direction of Lochgoin circuit. Ignore footpath to right shortly after this, continuing straight past 53. Thereafter follow circuit signs passing the viewpoint with interesting direction finder on left. Straight on at crossroads at the end of the loch [Spine Rd 1.8km], right after 29, then left on to Spine Rd. The road is signed along its length past Corse Hill to the electricity sub station at Ardochrig. Left on reaching the road after the substation and downhill to Auldhouse or Eaglesham. Alternative direct route from Corse Hill down to Eaglesham via Carrot – see route 10.
