Milngavie to Drymen.

Caught the train from Glasgow to Milngavie (pronounced mull-guy because: Scotland) at 11:38.

A signpost with directions to the start of the West Highland Way.

A stone monument marks the starting point of the West Highland Way, with a metal arch overhead bearing the same name.

Grabbed a coffee from Costa and started at 12:30.
