      Cathkin Braes Country Park is located on the southern edge of Glasgow within easy reach of a population of 1.8 million people. Complete with stunning views over the city and an excellent mix of terrain, the country park provides an ideal backdrop for major international events.
      The provision of a mountain bike circuit of this standard is almost unique so close to such a large population. Often mountain trails are located within in the countryside, lacking the convenient access that Cathkin Braes offers.
