Moray Monster Trails

Nestled far enough of the normal drag Moray Monster trails doesn't get the rep it deserves. Outside Fochabers and set over two hills with a road running between them, the trails are a superb mix of flowing jump and berm filled blue, red and technical blacks. Whilst having a tight natural character, the loops themselves…Read more Moray Monster Trails

Pannanich DH

On a recent ride I went to find a local legendary trail called Heart Break Ridge. A long sinuous line flowing singletrack cutting over a open hillside along a wide ridge before dropping steeplly into the tree line for a rooty technical finale. Or so I was hoping for. Setting off up a burner of…Read more Pannanich DH

Fungle Road

Heading south from the Fungle singletrack is the Fungle Road itself. The old drovers road connects Deeside in the north with Tarfside in the south and is usually part of a larger loop.

Fungle Road Infection

A evenings ride towards the end of summer, some final days of late northern light to play in, but be sure to be home before the street lights are on. With the wee man settled and the chores done there was still enough light for a stolen hours or so of riding, yearning for some wilder…Read more Fungle Road Infection

Mount Battock

Standing silently behind Clachnaben, Mount Battock looks a innocuous little peak behind its more popular sibling. Not one to be underestimated, it is nearly 200m higher than Clachers and enjoys unbroken views in all directions. Sometimes, all you need is a proper hardtail hoof, a stiff climb and to go 40-50km on the way back…Read more Mount Battock
