    Depends what kind of riding your after. The terrain in West Lothian is more suited to XC riding rather than steep gnarly stuff. On the Beecraigs perimeter you have Witchcraig above the Korean war memorial which has some steeper descents…   Read more»

    Hi Jonny. Occasionally have a peek on here to see if it’s getting any better but sadly I don’t see any improvement so far. I’m really sorry it’s going this way and I wish i or somebody else had a…   Read more»

    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…   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…   Read more»

    G’day Poa.

    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…   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…   Read more»

    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…   Read more»

    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 /…   Read more»
