Head to Mugdock or Campsies - some pretty nice wilder land there.
You'll find in town areas / parks for during the week. Its just different and requires an alternative mindset to Deeside. Finding folk to run with will help too.
yes think ill try head to Mugdock at some point. found that theres some sort of trail series every month there so that would be good. Now that Glasgow and Strathclyde have started should have more people to run with, going to join the hares and hounds as well.
