    This stage follows the Forth and Clyde Canal for the most part; exploring great scenery, ancient forts and feats of modern engineering.

    

    You begin by climbing Croy Hill, which has a Roman Fort and affords spellbinding views over the Kilsyth Hills, the Firth of Forth, Fife hills and Bar Hill fort.
