Road or offroad?

Nice enough place - had a few "moments" in one of the nearby carparks around 30 years ago :wink:

As i've heard it's meant to be quite good?

Actually I was around Cathkin once a year ago with my neighbour but on road only. Very nice place but so dodgy area below. I remember some drunk neds with golf sticks when we've stopped to rest at the top car park (don't think they were from golf club) As Gazz said better go there with some friends.
