About the Project

A team of designers would like to hear your thoughts on their proposals for a redesigned route between Helensburgh and Garelochhead. The project is funded by Argyll and Bute Council, with the support of Sustrans Scotland's Places for Everyone programme, which is funded by Transport Scotland

Project Aims

  • Make it easier and safer for people of all ages to walk, cycle, and wheel for leisure and commuting, helping to reduce the local carbon footprint

  •  Connect local amenities such as businesses, schools, transport, and tourist spots

  • Enhance and compliment the natural beauty of the area


Community Engagement

To ensure that this project truly improves the experience of those travelling the route, we

are engaging with the community every step of the way. We have conducted

multiple surveys with the public, schools, and employers. We will hold

a day-long Route Relay on Thursday, 9th September, 2021,  during which the

team will cycle the full 7.7 mile route - stopping at important locations

along the way to meet and chat with people about the project.

Have Your Say


As members of the local community, you know the area best. 

At this stage, you can help set the team in the right direction

by leaving your feedback on this website. Your responses are an

essential consideration as we refine the final design.


Please View Designs to leave your comments before Thursday 16th September 2021.
