Some nice esoterica

This is an excellent little trail. Popped in on my way up to Oban from Northumberland. Only happened across the trail after trawling the forestry commision site and was very impressed with what I found when I got there.  It feels like yours miles from anywhere as the location is well off the beaten track. The top Twisted Firestarter section is bumpy and technical, amost like a Mini McMoab ridge (Kirroughtree) which leads into fun singletrack with some nice rocky steep sections. Further down you'll find Murder Hill which is a top class piece to trail building - fast and twisty with a few jumps popped in for good measure.
Definately worth seeking out if your in the area. I found it well worth the detour, so much so I did it again on the way home.

Good points:

Brilliant for a short blast.
Good variety of trail type.
Good riding surface.

Bad points:

Start of trail could be better signposted when leaving the car park.
No facilities.

Would you recommend?
