This ride can be linked in after the Cnoc Dubh descent as that is the easiest and most enjoyable way to access the descent. It can also paired with a climb up the Burn o' Vat track or a ride round Loch Kinord.

The Roller Coaster does exactly what it says on the tin...its fast and has lots of crests and troughs to ride hard. Its not the longest descent to be found in the area but you're guaranteed to have a big grin on your by the end.

There is one section just after a particularly blind crest to watch out for. It that drops you into a deep tire-gouged track filled with pedal-catching rocks and the risk of going over the handlebars if your weight isnt far enough back on the bike.
