    ll post one out to you The entrance to this path is a little tricky to find but once on it it is quite easy to follow It starts on the west of the Tak ma Doon Road a couple of hundred metres north of the car park the point where it leaves the road is marked by a green barrier It carries on westwards over the tops of Tomtain and Garrel Hill with occasional crossings of the wall marking the boundary of the forest estate The track has always been quite wet when this surveyor has been on it but then these surveys have been during extremely wet weather so it is probably fine in nicer weather The path peters out at the point where it meets the route up from Birkenburn Reservoir although the historic route probably came from much further west OS Landranger 64 Glasgow Motherwell Airdrie Heritage Information There is very little direct evidence for this ridge route having been used for droving but there are quite a few clues that point towards it having been used for this purpose The route to the east of the Tak ma Doon Road is well documented as having been used for droving and was named as Drove Loan in many old maps This asks the question of where drovers were coming from in order to travel this way Coming north up the Tak ma Doon from Kilsyth makes the trip to Falkirk Tryst longer and coming south from the Carron Valley may be marginally shorter but surely far harder as there is such a steep climb to get onto the ridge It would make sense that drovers were ascending the ridge much earlier perhaps from the Crow Road or even the Balfron Killearn or Strathblane area This way
