A good introduction to riding the hills around Stirling. A Week up in Stirling meant that I couldnt ignore the presence of Dumyat above me. I quick search showed that it was a popular ride with local MTB'ers. So one fine evening, I drove up to the car park and unloaded my bike and aimed for the top. The rocky nature of the trail meant that I was soon pushing up the path. Once the beacon is reached, a few minutes to catch my breath and admire the view out over the river Forth and then the descent! Quite technical negotiating the rocks through the low sunlight meant my sight was fixed firmly a few feet ahead of my wheel to ensure I wasn't spat over the bars or slide of the trail in some of the narrower points. All too soon I was back at the road. options from here would include taking to the woods back to the university, but as the light was fading and my car was up here, I had to drive back down. A good introduction to the hills of Scotland for someone more used to the chalk and flint of the South Downs.I'd spend more time and try out the woodland trails if I had more time.

Good points:

A good test of technical trail riding and negotiating rocky trails. Lovely views.

Bad points:

it's an uphill push for most of the climb.

Would you recommend?

Great views on the way up. Had to hike a bike for a bit, as rocky route made for a tricky ascent,as well as the way down!

Riding Dumyat has got me itching to venture further north into the mountains to ride but Dumyat itself is always a good ride with a great decent right from the wide open top to a twisty often tight decent through Mine Woods.

Good points:

Great place to get a taster of real natural trail riding. Great view over the Stirling area from the top! Plenty of technical spots on the ups and the downs Fast and flowy

Bad points:

Sharing the paths with walkers so you have to careful!

Would you recommend?

*Yes*
