Scotland Mountain Biking – Wild Trails Vol.2 features 24 new and classic mountain bike rides across Scotland. Like the original Wild Trails guidebook, this book includes challenging mountain passes, endless singletrack, lochside cruises and more, all in a country named a 'Global Superstar' by the International Mountain Biking Association. Split into three sections – Southern & Central Scotland, North West Scotland & Islands, and North East Scotland – Wild Trails Vol.2 has been researched, ridden and written by Scottish Mountain Bike Guide Phil McKane, and each route features clear and easy to use Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 maps, easy-to-follow directions, details of distance, timings and difficulty gradings, and refreshment stops and local knowledge. The book is illustrated with stunning action photography from top pro photographer Andy McCandlish, and also features a detailed Appendix.
Phil McKane has been addicted to riding mountain bikes since his fluorescent Emmelle was systematically rattled to pieces beneath him, around 1991. Since then he has dabbled in many aspects of mountain biking, from cross-country racing to wilderness touring. After completing his Masters degree in Sports Science, Phil set up Scottish Mountain Bike Guides, operating mountain bike holidays and skills courses all over the country from the 7Stanes to the Western Isles. He has written two guides to mountain biking in Scotland: Scotland Mountain Biking – The Wild Trails and Scotland Mountain Biking – Wild Trails Vol.2.
Andy McCandlish is one of the UK’s top mountain biking photojournalists, and an expert on Scottish mountain biking. His articles and photography feature regularly in the cycling press, including MBR magazine, What MTB and more. He is the co-author of Bike Scotland Trails Guide, published by Pocket Mountains, and he has contributed photography to Vertebrate Publishing’s two Scotland Mountain Biking guidebooks.
