Milngavie is a small town in Scotland, situated about 6 miles north west of Glasgow.

For a light hearted introduction to the town, see the Milngavie 2020 Olympics Bid [1].

Understand[edit]

Milngavie is a commuter town, with much of its working population travelling to Glasgow to work or study. However, the town is known to tourists as the southern terminus of the West Highland Way - a long distance footpath leading to Fort William. A granite obelisk in the town centre marks the official starting point of the footpath.

Despite the spelling of the name, Milngavie is pronounced 'Mul-guy'.

Get in[edit]

Milngavie is around 6 miles north of the centre of Glasgow.
