7Stanes : Glentrool

Dudes, Just got the 7 Stames news letter and there's a new 58km route at Glentrool, they reckon 5-9 hours. But there's no singletrack...

"Glentrool is located in the heart of Galloway Forest Park. It's a fascinating area rich in beauty and home to the south of Scotland's highest mountain รข€" the magnificent Merrick. With all that rugged landscape at your disposal then you'd expect a mountain bike trail to be there somewhere! Well... now there is! The Glentrool Big Country ride is now fully waymarked and open. No single track on this one but 58km of forest tracks and minor public roads. On a good day it packs some of the best views in this part of the world. Be warned though, in bad weather it will feel a very long way and the big climb of the route (200m) comes when you are 40km out and there are no short cuts. Enjoy! If touring amongst brilliant landscapes is your bag then Glentrool is the one for you."
