The Hillend Loch Railway Path, also known as the Airdrie to Bathgate Railway Path, is a rail trail located in central Scotland. The path is approximately 14 miles (23 km) long and follows the route of the former Bathgate and Coatbridge Railway between Airdrie, North Lanarkshire (55°51′58″N 3°57′14″W / 55.8662°N 3.9539°W / 55.8662; -3.9539 (Hillend Loch Railway Path, Airdrie trailhead)), and Bathgate, West Lothian (55°53′30″N 3°37′21″W / 55.8918°N 3.6224°W / 55.8918; -3.6224 (Hillend Loch Railway Path, Bathgate trailhead)).

It formed part of National Cycle Network Route 75 which runs from Clyde to Forth.[1] It is also known as Airdrie to Bathgate Railway Path.[2]

The railway reopened in 2010 and the path was relocated to run alongside the railway line.[3]
