It's a long way away rob, but some say it is just small.

The Farr I found was - up on the North coast between Durness and Thuso

I am nearly ride worthy again, so the wife says.

Have you guys checked out the hills out south of Farr? Some of my favourite riding.

Perhaps get some winter rides sorted.

There are loads of Farrs, much more than Nears which is odd.

Loads of 'undeveloped' trails with some great hills and stunning views.

I have done convoluted quasi scrambling/carrying routes over to the Corrieyairack way back in the day, but this wee loop is pretty nice, if you take the suggestion of the Garbole/Farr road.

Ok it's not hugely up North but we've got a ride going from Arbroath tomorrow, meeting 10am at the harbour. Only expecting a small turnout considering its Easter Sunday, but everyone's welcome.

Don't know if we'll get any interest, but hopefully get some new faces.
The other thread has turned a bit into the East Neuk rides thread!

It would be good to get some more people interested in coming up this way. Maybe not as far up as myself but even further north than the clan usually travel.
Even a get together for those of us actually in the highlands. I had a great ride out on Friday afternoon around Strathpeffer/Garve area. Lots of great hidden trails all over the highlands.

There are quite a few folk on our books from Aberdeen northward whom are never seen. You northern lot should get your own local riding group like our east coast riders or the Westies midweek Mountains.
