Route Description

From Nether Urquhart the route follows a single width tarred minor road as far the Lappie road end, thereafter a rough surface with vestiges of old tarmac passing fields and patches of woodland to new housing north of Glenlomond Hospital. A wooden finger-post is passed at NO168059, indicating the route up Glen Vale. The route is then a tarred minor public road past the Hospital.  Continue on to and past the junction to Wester Balgedie down a track to Balnethill.

OS Landranger 59 (St Andrews, Kirkcaldy & Glenrothes)

 

Heritage Information

As well as being known locally as the "Dryside Road", this route is also known, more informally - and perhaps only to a few - as the "Sanny Road", referring to the fact that what is marked on the maps as Glenlomond Hospital was also known as the Sanatorium.
