New Shorter Route for 2017

2017 sees the introduction of a new shorter route to replace the 45 and 65 mile routes that started in Dufftown and Rhynie. The new route, which is about 50 miles, is a circular route and will start and finish in Ballater, so there will be no logistical difficutlies. The route starts off along the 100 mile closed road circuit, but turns off to head west along Strathdon before regaining the 100 mile closed road route again at Colnabaichin. Along the 50 mile route there are four climbs to tackle: Queen’s View (296m), Cushnie (323m), Towie (333m) and Gairnshiel (550m).
