Perfect 10k trail route

I feel so lucky to live to close to many perfect trail routes to run however there is nothing quite like the start of the West Highland Way (“WHW”) and into Mugdock Country Park.  The path undulates, there is a small climb and the path underfoot is ideal for all seasons. It is mostly woods surrounding the path and this morning there were large patches of blue bells and butter cups.

Starting at the Drumclog car park, off Mugdock Road next to Mugdock Reservoir the path joins the WHW for 3 miles past Craigallan Loch. After the houses there is a gate on the right had side with a steep climb through Loch Woods to Broadmeadow Road and into Mugdock country park. There are numerous trail paths through the park to chose from. We followed one to the South Lodge car park which rejoins Mugdock Road.

Why not go and investigate the route and tell me what you think?
