Eag Mhor gap (Red) 3 hours

This route again starts outside the Spar shop at Nethybridge. There are various way’s to make it to forest lodge and the best idea is to pick a map and have a look. From forest lodge you then go down a steep rocky hill and follow the forest track round. It’s then best to use a map to negotiate your way to eag mhor. One hinter although on OS map’s it say’s there’s no direct track through the forest just before the gap there is! There is also a dodgy river crossing just after a long forest track downhill before the forest. The track from here is a bit faded but rapidly improves. Going through the gap is then really spectacular with bits of nice singletrack through the gap this is my favourite part of the cycle. You then follow a succession of farm tracks which our downhill and good fun you then cross a wide river (there our stepping stones through it) you then continue following the farm track’s til you reach the road from here you go west and its a gentle 7km ish cycle on the road back to NethyBridge.
