I’ve previously written about Earl’s seat here https://twinbikerun.com/2021/01/05/rugged-run-earls-seat/
This time I wanted to try to get to the top via finglen. I thought if I followed the river for as long as possible then I’d be able to jump across to the once the sides of the glen became less steep.
I was correct 🙂
The walk up the river was surprisingly easy but it was a bit of a slog across the moor at the end.
Check out the vide to see the full details.
Quiet but can be slog if the ground is bad.
Plenty of parking in Clachan if you get there early but it can get busy later in the day.
None on the route
There is a cafe at the start and end of the run.
80% moor/grass. 20% off road (through trees)
It depends on the route you choose to go down but I normally don’t take my dog’s just in case there is sheep.
542M of elevation.
