Default Calling Scotland

We have a trail in the West of Scotland, oh yes we do, and it is called the Lochwinnoch Loop. It is part of the National Cycle path network and very nice it is for skating. A tad narrow, smooth, mainly flat, off the road and very scenic well you would expect that in Scotland would you not.

You park at the very pleasant Lochwinnoch Water Sports Centre. There is a choice of directions and lengths depending on how far you wish to skate at the time.

We are (I am) there every Wednesday evening at 7pm (weather permitting) from Easter to the end of September. Sometimes I skate all by myself and very lonely it is too, other times, like this week, we managed 9 skaters. Thats big numbers in our area.

If you should ever be around please do come and join us (me) you will be most welcome.

Default East of Scotland

The cycle trail from Alloa to Dunfermline. (Another favourite).

Straight off the road skating for 10 miles on a smooth surface with a slight gradient rising towards Dunfermline. The trail is a good width and very scenic, of course. Park at either end but if you like the prevailing wind behind you on the way back best to start from Dunfermline.

Ever think of giving it a bash let me know and I'll try and meet you there but be warned I can only chug along at about 10mph.

Default You are having too much fun

Hi Oldie,

Well with Kathie's new set up YOU are certainly having some fun with your region.

I thought I would enter your tread so you would not be all alone in Cold rainy Scotland.

Enjoy,,

Yours in Skating, MA/NY Dave

Scotland and skating trails too - very tempting! I've always wanted to visit Scotland but so far the closest I've been is England, Ireland, and Northern Ireland.

Default One Special Gal are You

Hi Kathie,
You too Oldie,

Kathie you are one special gal with lots of great intellectual flexibility.

Must be those cute feet are connected to your brain.
As for me it must be something else.

Yours in Skating, MA/NY Dave

Don't worry about me, when you skate in Scotland you get used to skating alone.
