Ample mud

Aberfoyle view

Had an invite from Graham to his place up at Aberfoyle for a few days hoping we'd get a bit of mountain biking.
It didn't quite go as planned though but Graham and I did manage a very nice loop along Glen Ample and Loch Luibnaig.
There was lots of mud about breaking up the single track flow, if some local enthusiast took some time to throw down a few rocks in the mud it could be a fabulous trail, as it is the good stretches are great but its best feature is the scenery and the feeling of remoteness.
We stopped off at Rob Roy McGregors grave at Balquidder before heading back round the easy home stretch down the Loch.
The Library tea room at Balquidder was shut, not sure if that was a Wednesday thing or something more permanent, still a great day out though even with all the mud and no cafe stop.

Some pictures here.
