I took the push bike up with me and rode the black route at the Highland Wildcat Trails at Golspie. I'd watched loads of videos and heard a fair few stories about the place but it doesn't give you a real idea about how steep it all is.The climb had me proper fucked at some points and (unlike me) I got lost so missed the lactic ladder section and ended up going the lang way roond, I still had a good sense of achievement getting to the top. Coming back down is mental. The first few sections had my arse going like a rabbits nose, but one I got used to it I got a wee bit faster and even caught some "air". Radical.
Can't wait to get down to Glentress now to see what thats like.
The only downside to the Golspie run was me losing my phone in the car park at the end of the day. Hopefully the insurance will sort it all out.

He was responsible for the Highland Clearances. Probably not the most popular monument around.
