       Great great line and features, like the newly cut trail.
      First few hundred metres no trail, so watch rear mech in heather.
      Hope it doesn’t get too boggy. Great alternative to maiden causeway.

       Rode this last night, unfortunately even though it’s mid summer it is very boggy and muddy already. Almost no flow in parts, won’t be doing it again. Especially when the walkers path is soo good bomb down.

       Tried to ride this today and couldn’t find it. Started at the small stone cairn just below Craigshannoch as on TrailForks but couldn’t see anything resembling a trail. Must have overgrown.
