Anyone with access to the first book will appreciate that I don't go in for blow by blow accounts of routes. No screeds of history, geology or any of that malarkey that is not actually relevant when you're riding.
The maps in the book will highlight all necessary turning points and grid references where appropriate.
In short, you get the info you actually need to complete a ride without the garnish. No matter how you tart a route up in prose, it's how it rides that counts and this one is lovely..
This is another route that has benefitted from a revisit and revision from its first outing in Mountainbike Scotland the Highlands. It's being shown here in the proposed format for the new book. No doubt some tweaks will take place between now and publication but this is the general look. Nothing much else to be said except that it's a great wee half day for workhorses and a superb intro to "proper" mountain biking for others.

Mountain biking is an adventure sport with associated risks. It is the responsibilty of all riders to be fully conversant with the risks to themselves and the risks to others. The activity also has impact on the land. This impact not only extends to wear and tear on trails but also how it affects agriculture and ecology. You must at all times be mindful of these factors. Any route suggested should only be accessed within the provisions of the Land Reform Scotland Act and conform to the concept of responsible acces within the terms of that act which spoecifies that any such access should be responsible.

No route published by Mountainbike Scotland should be undertaken without adherance to all f the foregoing.
