Suburban Milngavie is an inauspicious place to begin a great long distance walk, and the mountains aren't even in sight from here. But the West Highland Way had to start somewhere. This whole stage has the air of a prelude, a warm-up to get you into your stride for the rest of the route. It's a pleasant enough country stroll - green and leafy, but unremarkable. The main scenic interest is around the foot of the Campsies, where the pointy mini summit of Dumgoyne gives a worthwhile potential detour.
