There are two basic routes between the Snuff Mill and the White Bridge. One to the West of the river, and the other to the East.

The routes to the West along the White Cart Walkway is scenically extremely attractive but it does have some 200 steps - some up some down - which make it unsuitable for Prams and Bicycles; whereas the on the Eastern side is a tarmac path with some steep but not unassailable grades - but it suffers from a lack of drainage.

As one enters there is a path on the left hand side through the trees going up to the castle. The remains of the weir are visible on the western side. The channel (or adit) which brought the water to the mill ran alongside the path - tho' nothing can now be seen. The open area along side the river is excellent for picnics, and generally meeting and chilling out. As you climb the hill, there is an appalling fence: towards the end of this fence you will see the last rock fall. There is an alternative route if you want. 

Go up Snuff Mill Road, and turn left along Netherlee Road. You can either cut down to the White Bridge through the Adventure Playground car park using the new tarmac path or slightly longer continue to the Clarkston Road entrance and use the main entrance.

The roads are delightful, and Along Netherlee Road one passes between two cemeteries. The one to west (Muirend side) is well worth a walk through. There is a "wicket" half way along. Once you get to the entrances, just beyond is the Adventure Playground through whose car park there is a short cut to the White Bridge.
