the road to Groddie? Did a bit of terrain running in it a few weekends back and it was rather nice.

Yes, just south of Logie Coldstone, down as far as the open marsh - south of that a wee gap then Redburn map - which joins onto Muir of Dinnet.

Cool, i popped into it and found the terrain pretty quick for running in, is the old map usable?

SarahD:
Yes, but there's about to be a new one too thanks to Logie Coldstone school :-)

This was the only new map in the small maps project way back that never got used. Assumed the landowner had stuck a spanner in somewhere.

Landowner is Dinnet Estate (as far as I am aware), area hardly changed in 19 years - just a bit of thinning (probably due for a major clearance soon then, knowing our luck!)

Sounds hopeful anyway..as Sarah says if we can get a DNC out of it......

Actually there was another map that never got used...Glen of Peat Lochans...between Coull and Craiglich. Suspect there was a reason of some sort....

The clues are maybe in the name - "peat" and "lochans" suggest a bog hole!

Didn't know about that one - anyone got an old map? Although you're probably right Jethro, except there's probably a bit of felling to the mix too!

Being Irish, "Glen of Peat Lochans" and "bog hole" have a certain romantic air about them. Sounds like a great area.

Brad - we'll let you know when/if we hold an event and you can be guest of honour (and first out onto the course) ;-)

I love your optimism Brad. I fear you are deluded. :-)

Initial searches haven't found the map but I'll keep looking. Incidentally on the subject of lost areas, whatever happened to Tomahallich?

We were discussing that the other day too. I suspect it's badly broom / gorse infested, although they do seem to have done some clearing up there. I only ran on it once I think - Long O with Balnagowan - maybe AT planning? Don't think I have a copy of the map any more.

Now that one I certainly have...
