Great descent. Fast and flowy with very few water bars. Definitely deserves its red trail grading as its not technical or steep. One of the best munro descents in Scotland.

Great descent. Best to ride straight up and back down. The majority of it is rideable on the way up and it appears to be quicker to do it this way than taking the black climb on trail forks.
