Milngavie is a busy commuter station for Glasgow, serving the town of Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire. The station is notably well kept, having won several awards over the years for its floral arrangements and station gardens. It has services to both Glasgow Central and Glasgow Queen Street; Central trains continue to Motherwell or Cumbernauld, and Queen Street trains continue to Edinburgh. A short walk west of the station you'll find Main Street, a pedestrianised stretch of shops and cafes that forms the heart of town, and away from the high street there are several large open spaces and golf courses, as well as the town's large reservoirs, which are a popular spot with ramblers and cyclists. They're about a mile north of the station. Milngavie station is also a gateway to the acclaimed 95-mile West Highland long-distance footpath, which officially starts in Milngavie town centre and is marked by a large granite obelisk.
