|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at traffic lights on the D2 A8 Edinburgh Road and heads southwest along the residential Barrachnie Road. To the right is Barrachnie Crescent, which leads to the back entrance to Garrowhill station. Our road bends gradually round to the left; after crossing a mini-roundabout it heads southwards past a line of shops to cross the A89 at traffic lights.
We continue on along the straight Mount Vernon Avenue. This feels more rural as the road is tree-lined and houses only front onto our road at the very beginning; other visible houses are on side streets. We pass a couple of parks and even apparent fields at one point. In the suburb of Mount Vernon we pass an office block then descend to traffic lights on the A74; the access to Mount Vernon station is on the left just before the lights.
