Collection by Mark Beaumont

The travel restrictions of Tier 4 got Markus Stitz komoot.com/user/642038402014 and I talking about where the council boundaries of Scotland are - and what gravel routes could be created around the circumference of each. Most county boundary routes in Central Scotland are less than 125 miles (200km) so possible in a single day, which is pretty exciting. But good luck for those living in the Highlands! Please note, neither of us know all of these suggested routes, so use common sense and feedback where they can be improved - and also get in touch if you are in other county's and would like us to create a suggested route. We have started with 24 and will add more.Let's start 2021 with some endurance adventures to explore the boundaries of our counties.Aberdeen - 63 miles

    Rode this a few weeks back, really enjoyed it, lot more off road than expected, plenty of interesting wee bits, ground was soft in some places so looking forward to doing it again with drier weather
