Rocks and roots

Arran - Laggan

The climb to the saddle was easy enough for Rich to do but too hard for me. So I pushed while Rich bum-waggled his way into the distance. The view on the far side into the Clyde is awesome and really adds atmosphere to the descent. The final section is ridiculously steep so I ended up walking which was a sad finale. But then you get beachside singletrack all the way to Fallen Rocks which is superb - all rideable. Arran Bike Club suggest a descent from the summit of the A road down Glen Chalmadale but we only found the faintest of paths and ended up doing some fairly depressing pushing downhill over tussocks. You'll need to ride the A road to make this a circular route.
