Old road from Carman Muir to Renton
Old road from Carman Muir to Renton
Its route is still very easy to make out today; it is bounded on either side by a long narrow ridge. At the point shown, the road runs parallel to and only a few yards south of the footpath that runs from the top of the Hundred Steps (see NS3878 : The Hundred Steps) towards Carman Reservoir.

See NS3878 : Old road for a view (in a different season) in the opposite direction along the same section of the road.
Remains of a road :: NS3878

An old road ascended the slopes to the west of Renton and passed the southern end of Carman Loch (as it was known before it became a reservoir). A path ascending through the woods is part of the old road, but the most visible remains are on the flat muir to the south-east of the reservoir, where the road is bounded by two parallel gorse-bearing ridges spaced about 14 metres apart. See LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view with marker pins on the line of the road.
