- Minigaig Pass – Blair Atholl. Anyone ridden it?
I’m looking at some routes for next weekend. Thinking of heading North Blair Atholl up Glen Bruar, through Minigaig Pass and ending up in Glen Feshie eventually. Has anyone tried it?
It looks like it get high up on the map with some steep sections, just wondering how much of it is rideable. Alternative would be to go via Falls of Tarf but even that isn’t nearly all rideable to Glen Feshie so only worried if the Minigaig Pass is a totally misery festival.Posted 5 years agokcrMember
A few pics, but not much route detail here:
I rode it in unusually dry conditions, and it was a great route, but if you do a search, you will find ride reports suggesting it can be a bit of a trudge in places under wet/normal conditions.Posted 5 years agoscotroutesMember
It’s easily rideable to the end of the Bruar valley. A push up the steep bit, then ok across the plateau. The start of the descent is fine but you’ll be pushing for a couple of km at the bottom. To get to Feshie, you will have another push up to the top of the forest (ignore the track marked through it). From there it’s a good descent down to the R. Feshie. You can carry on up the West side of the river to meet the tarmac road or cross the river for the nicer riding on the East side.
I was across it a few weeks ago and it was still very, very wet on account of the massive amount of snow we had this winter all melting.Posted 5 years ago
