Park at the train station at Dunkeld … Go through the underpass and head up left following the river and stay on it climbing all the way up Birnam hill. Pink Floyd and Rake and ruin start from near the top. Easier than the trails at the mast across the road but the roots on Pink Floyd can be slippy. As above have a look at Trailforks for the…[Read more]
Hi. It’s been a few years since I done this so just going on memory. It’s a tough old day out especially after heavy rain so a week or so of dry weather beforehand would be a huge advantage. There is parking space at Lone next to the shed so start there. The track up the Abhainn an Loin is rather moist especially at the watershed so expect heavy…[Read more]
Vorlich, Lawers, Lomond…. The old tried and tested descents. Try Ben Ledi but watch for walkers lower down. Ben Chonzie, Creggan na Beinne, Schiehallion, Carn a Chlamain. All fairly easy- ish to start off with
WTB and SDG Bell Air saddles are comfy if you get them in the sweet spot. They do produce a hammock effect though so this might not suit you. The Specialized Henge is a much overlooked butt cusher but it does a great job without creaking or falling to bits at the merest hint of a crash….good price too. Fails for me Fisik Gobi and Charge Sco…[Read more]
There is a campsite with facilities at Beecraigs which is just a short uphill detour from the canal basin at Linlithgow. There are lots of nice camping opportunities at either side of the canal and lots of Bridges to cross over if needed to access them.
Hi. This is the best way to do it. The singletrack from the chest of Dee up past Corrour is horrible and boggy in places with new sections of path thrown in. The descent from Macdui is great especially heading down to the Hutchison memorial hut… Glen Derry decent is great too but cross over to the right hand side at a bridge further down the…[Read more]
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Yep just a tame landy track most of the way. Taking the old track up Glen Garr before the farm you will encounter much bogginess but it steadily improves as it climbs up. The descent ends at a gate / fence but don’t be tempted to follow a trail on the left as it works its way along the edge of the trees and uphill.…[Read more]
