More good stuff,
This review is from: Scotland Mountain Biking: The Wild Trails (Paperback)
Anyone who is familiar with VG's great trailguides for the rest of the UK will know the format of their guides; great trailmaps, inspiring pictures and what I find to be the perfect level of information; enough that you don't get lost, but not so much that feel like an infant being spoon fed.
The guide is divided into 3 logical sections and each of these sections has a range of rides, varying from quick blasts to full day trips and multi-day epics, including an accurate description of the Coast to Coast ride starting in Montrose and finishing in Fort Bill.
Many of the routes described are the "classic" XC circuits of Scotland, usually taking in fantastic scenery, sampling from all the varied and beautiful parts of the country. If you are a "local" you will probably know the trails closer to you, from word of mouth or basic information on a website or forum, but away from your home turf the trails are all here, accurately described, and neatly laid out using OS Style Maps, so all mapping is familiar and easy to follow. If you planned on doing all the routes in this map using the individual OS Maps it would cost a fair few pounds.
This is a great guide for anyone, either local or visitor, who wants a bit more adventure from their mountain biking than following the neatly marked "pistes" at the trail centres scattered across the country. Definitely worthwhile buying for yourself or as a pressie for any friends or family who are mountain bikers.
