For a light hearted introduction to the town, see the Milngavie 2020 Olympics Bid .
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'.
Milngavie is around 6 miles north of the centre of Glasgow.
ScotRail  operate up to four trains an hour to Milngavie. Two trains per hour run from Edinburgh Waverley via Glasgow Queen Street (Low Level) and Airdrie on the North Clyde Line, while the other two travel from Motherwell via Glasgow Central (Low Level) and Blantyre on the Argyle Line (with one train an hour coming from Lanark). In the evenings and on Sundays a half-hourly service operates from Lanark via Bellshill, Motherwell and Glasgow Central (Low Level).
You can walk almost everywhere, Milngavie is a small place.
Get fit and go on the West Highland Way.
