Saturday Morning Coaching - 7th September 2013

Event type: Activity

Despite an unpromising weather forecast 20 hardy souls came to Mugdock to tackle the maze and a short yellow standard course, as part of the week long outdoor festival at the park. A mixture of enthusiastic newcomers, old hands and one or two returning to the sport made this a very positive day for CLYDE. Because this was an activity rather than an event, there are no published results, but a special mention for young Guy Baxter who posted the fastest maze time of the day, beating Michael Paterson’s time by 1 second. Hopefully we will see you all back for our next coaching in October.

Map of Mugdock and Craigallian mapTerrain description

A favourite CLYDE area. A huge mixture of terrain. At the South end we have the urban environment of Milngavie town centre where the railway station and supermarket are on the map. The North has rough moorland and mixed plantation forest and the middle section has areas of managed country park, woodland and moorland. There are even 2 ruined castles and some WWII archeology around. There is a good network of paths through this varied terrain and areas of intricate details in contours, rock and vegetation. The visitor centre has toilets with piped music, two different cafes, a garden centre and shop.
