Rocks and roots

Arran - Clauchlands Point

This route needs to be ridden as a weird loop to make the most of it. The descent from the summit of the Clauchland Hills is great - it eases you into a false sense of security and then suddenly gets steep and technical! After a climb back up to where you started you descend towards Lamlash. The cliff top descent isn't exposed at all - it's singletrack sufficiently far away from the edge not to be worrying. It's not terribly tehcnical but very atmospheric!
