The Bogie Line path starts at Croy Station and follows the south side of the railway line in an easterly direction. After about 1.5km, either continue straight ahead to reach the Wester Dullatur railway bridge which enables access to Croy Hill or turn right to follow a path around the top of an another old quarry into Dullatur village. The route of the Bogie Line is partly track and partly path, but is in need of some work.

Circa 1900, this path was the route of a small gauge, horse drawn, bogie railway which carried whinstone from the nearby Auchinbee and Croy quarries to a loading area at Croy Station.It is also said that coal was exported along it, and that miners living in Dullatur used the route to get to Croy Pit.

On the OS 2nd edition 6" map (surveyed 1896), the Bogie Line can be seen marked as a TRAMWAY running between Croy Station and Auchinbee Quarry (NS736762). These days, it is part of North Lanarkshire Council's Core Paths network.
