12/7/17 - Pathway/Steps at Kinleith Mill - Access is now available via both sets of steps to the WoL Walkway via the housing estate. Both concrete sections at the Lanark Road West access remain unchanged and will require care when walking as they are slippy. However the foot sections have been resurfaced and the handrail secured (replaced?) and painted. There are also new guard rails at the top for safety. The footbridge has been replaced and there is an additional small upper bridge on the estate side. You can now walk in a loop through the houses and back onto the WoL walkway or up to LRW.
