We will be going through the Kilsyth Hills by ascending the Crow Road, but the route avoids other hills.
We start going south from Stirling on the A872 to cross the motorway bridge after which we turn left for Muirmailing and Dunipace.
On to Banknock where we take the Forth/Clyde canal towpath all the way to Kirkintilloch, where we join the John Muir cycle way to Lennoxtown for lunch (22miles)
Then we climb the Crow Road! Imagine going up the Granites, then going up the Granites again. Great views!
We then descend to Fintry and Kippen to join the A811 where we stop for refreshment
Then back to Stirling by Gargunnock and Cambusbarron. (49miles total)
