I found this book on a search for mountain biking guides in Scotland, of which there are a few but of varying quality. On trips north I'd been to Glentress, about an hour south of Edinburgh, which is fantastic and very, very, very popular (try and find a car parking space at weekends). But I was keen to see what else was out there and this book is perfect. The photography is stunning and the routes are really varied, from places like Glentress to some really remote outposts. Some of the places I've never even heard of. Really useufl guide and nice to look at!

I think this is a fantastic wee book with obvious appeal to the ever growing spectrum of people who like to mountain bike. As a trails rider I particularly appreciate the informative and varied information on marked trails, including the less well known ones. But the fact that this book also provides first hand knowledge about some real gems of routes which are off the beaten track, and also has something to appeal to the "family" or novice riders among us means it is sure to have widespread appeal.

Having ridden some of the routes already I reckon the level of detail provided is just right for a pocket guide book. The pictures, and the author's enthusiasm for the trails, make you want get out there and ride them all. I'm looking forward to ticking them all off my "to do" list.

Very well laid-out, nice little book with many trails mentioned. Unfortunately, they seem to be only mentioned. In it is a ride I do at least once a month, in which there are several paths to achieve the summit of Dumyat (a hill above Stirling). However, I still don't know, even with the help of 1:25000 maps, which paths they are using. More in-depth descriptions would be welcome. Most of the time, with manmade trails/centres, this does not matter as information is at the destination.

Only buy if you need a starting point, even with a map, I think you will get lost on several of these rides!!! This book has loads of potential too, which is a shame - nicely set out, great pictures and some excellent trails mentioned.

I picked up a copy of this book in August and have since tried four of the routes. As a fairly recent convert to mountain biking, the book has been a god-send for me, and I know I will continue to use it for years to come. A well written and accessible guide, highly recommended.
