Someone decided to pave the parking bays with expensive stone paving slabs. What a waste!

Cycle parking in the grounds of Linlithgow Palace, where the courtyard is also a car park.

A cycle parking stand on Linlithgow High Street, along with designated footway parking, and some double parking.

Some of the cycle parking at Linlithgow station. There is another stand off to the right.

No passage here to Abercorn if you miss previous turn of 76

I've had my road bike out three times and it's filthy, almost all from this section. #nationalcyclenetwork #route75 https://t.co/gVKjmDXdSk

Beware of flooding in wet weather

Path washed out due to water flowing across the path from ground on the south side of the path.

Steps could be replaced by a ramp

Prone to flooding. Water gathers on the higher land on the west side of the path and flows onto the path. Needs a ditch to gather the water and pipe it under the path.

Road crossing

Cycle path by the Pyramids, Bathgate

This is on SPOKES WL map as a cycle path ! Very muddy. Not recommended for cycling

Sunken road and metal plate close to central island

Warning! Uneven road surface next half mile forcing cyclist into centre of carriageway.

Look out ! Exposed raised corner of manhole cover.

Gate on NCN76 at Hopetoun House

Hopetoun House Gates Heading east towards South Queensferry. gb.mapometer.com/en/cycling/route_1126592.html

The towpath over the Almond Aqueduct is narrow and cobbled, and cyclists are advised to dismount (and here most do)

The Union Canal towpath gets quite muddy when wet

A forest of signs at the junction between two minor roads. The road straight on is signed for NCN75 which can be found in Almondell Country Park. The road on the left leads to the Union Canal, and on the right to Livingston.

Path between Roman Camp and Uphall Station

Junction of paths to Roman Camp (left) and East Calder (right), without signage

Junction of unsurfaced path to East Calder and Roman Camp, and asphalt path to nearby cul-de-sac.

Bridge beneath railway, and sign at junction of paths to Uphall and East Calder, near Uphall station

Long bridge in Almondell Country Park

Iron Bridge in Almondell Country Park

Messy road closure at Uphall station, on the way to the cycle path

Cycle signage at Uphall station

Another barrier on the railway path in Livingston

Joggers don't like barriers either!

A direction sign on the Railway Path in Livingston

There is a flight of steps up from the NCN754 canal towpath to the road, which leads to NCN76 at Hopetoun House

Coming into Bathgate from the west, NCN75 crosses the railway line, but the ramp up to the bridge faces east, entailing path-users doubling back. There are no double-backs on the adjacent railway line!

A89 cyclepath at railway viaduct and Edinburgh city boundary, with another cyclist preferring the main carriageway

A89 cyclepath crossing filling station exit, with view obstructed by advertising, whilst some cyclists pass on main carriageway

The pedestrian crossing where users of the A89 cyclepath must cross side road (see #37338). Despite the End of Route sign, the route continues to Newbridge across the other side of the pedestrian crossing.

No crossing for A89 cyclepath at roundabout, users must go to the next junction on side road to cross over and double back - see #37339

Cyclists Dismount sign on A89 cyclepath at crossing with Grange Road

Junction of A89 cyclepath and path into Broxburn

Cyclists Dismount sign on A89 cyclepath at junction with Station Road

Another A89 junction with no thought put into how cyclepath should cross it - see #37335

Junction of A89 cyclepath and link to Union Canal (NCN 754) completely devoid of signage

Union Canal, towpath (NCN 754), and access ramp seen from A89 overbridge

Flared crash-barrier takes room from A89 cyclepath
