  • Loch Goil / Carrick Castle riding?
  • StuF

    We’re staying on the shore of Loch Goil near Carrick Castle, looking on google maps it looks like there should be loads of good riding around there.

    Any recommendations from the stw Scottish community?

    Hello from Dunoon. Well actually in the office in Gourock at the moment so can almost see you up Loch long!

    A few choices, though less than you’d think.

    You can go from Carrick south along the shore and come out at Ardentinny.

    From Lochgoilhead there’s the Dukes Pass – a loop over to the Rest & be Thankful, via Ardgarten, then the Dukes pass which is a great tral that brings you back to Lochgoilhead. Mostly fireroad but an enjoyable day out.

    Also at Ardgarten you can head up the Cobbler (great day out) or the Corriegrogain circuit.

    Enjoy 🙂

    Or there is the Glen Loin circuit as well

    its about 10 miles do good as an afternoon ride


    Cheers – I’ll have a look at those.

    in no way wishing to be pedantic richmtb, but just so StuF doesn’t go trying to find both of them and get very confused, Glen Loin & Corrigrogain are different names for the same route – Glen Loin is the singletrack, Corrigrogain is the farm where you turn off the Loch Sloy road onto the singletrack.

    Either way, you’e right it’s an ideal afternoon ride (but could be mega midgy late in the day), even linked in with the Succoth trails or out to the railway station. And even better is the excellent Village Inn at Arrochar is a stones-throw away 🙂
