Scolty Woods

Scolty Wood is a popular location for walkers, so bear this in mind when cycling here - look out for the red socks! This tracklog is based upon another of the Neep's routes. It's a fairly gentle ride that takes in some of the nice bits of singletrack in the area.

At the start of the ride the route climbs to the monument on Scolty Hill. There are a number of routes up and down the hill, but I have chosen the easiest climb and a descent which is fairly rocky and fun. Having taken in the hill, the route branches off into the forest to take in a few bits of singletrack around Goauch Wood (don't ask me how to pronounce that).

Once the singletrack fun is over, the ride finishes with a very pleasant quick spin alongside the River Dee. Take it easy along here, enjoy the scenery and look out for the Herons on the river.
