- What's the weather like up there, in Scotland
I rode down in Dalbettie last year when there had been much less rain and one of the riders in our group was up to his bars in water trying to plough through a soggy section! Kirroughtree drains better, but I would avoid Dalbettie.
It has rained pretty much non stop for 2 weeks in Glasgow and I hear the south west has been heavier, sorry if this sounds pessimistic!Posted 8 years agostevenmenmuirSubscriber
I was there too. Kirroughtree was fine, Mabie a bit muddy. Spoke to some guys who were at dalbeattie and said it was fine. Biggets problem could be the roads around Dumfries itself if it rains much more this week. If its dry for the rest of the week you should be fine. Think its to be dry and cold by the end of the week.Posted 8 years agodmillerMember

Just started building an ark and rounding up breeding pairs of animals up here in Carnoustie.
Seriously leave the sheeples alone!
Glasgow is wet – however I am riding GT or Inners on thursday (not decided yet) and I fully expect those two trail centres to be rideable.Posted 8 years agoepicycloSubscriber
The weather is lovely in Scotland (Highlands).
We've got lots of it, and the mountains look all the better for a bit of weather.
Really it's a case of just getting on with it – take plenty of waterproofs, and it won't rain. 🙂
BTW if you've got any spare global warming could you bring that up with you too?Posted 8 years agodalbeattie marin riderMember
Dalbeattie has 2 sections of Red Route closed for timber harvesting and the easy green and blue routes I think are closed completely as they are felling near the trail car park. Most of Dalbeattie, almost all of Kirroughtree and 3/4 of Ae are in forrest so protected from the worst wind. Dalbeattie surface erroded and rough from the recent rain but still a good challenge, Ae's exposed decents again very erroded, and Kirroughtree barely suffers at all from water errosion.Posted 8 years agocaledoniaMember
I heard on the news that they were checking brigdes in Dumfries and Galloway for the same reasons as Cumbria !
As Bob says, it has been hammering down for about the last 2 or 3 days, but to make matters worse, there are gale force gusting winds !
If i were u I'd make an informed decision on Friday before travelling all that way Norf ! Check as many sites as possible. metcheck.com has always been reliable for me.
If you do come up, have a blast and let us know how it works out !Posted 8 years ago
