Dumyat Gullies Grudge Match

7 of us took up the Ochils/HBT challenge at Dumyat on Sun. Duncan and Owen cycled over to warm up and Dave Calder made a welcome and rare appearance at a hill race. JD no.2 appeared on his mountain bike to cheer us on.For a change we were running from Blairlogie instead of the usual race route from Stirling Uni. A short trail section at the start got us warmed up, and saw me marooned at the rear, before we headed up a cracking steep gully on narrow trods to the summit. Back down the tourist route for a bit then off left to rejoin the steep gully for a hair raising descent. I managed to slide past a couple of Trotters to avoid finishing last, while Owen was leading the Westies and Sarah was sole Westies Woman. It was a great wee afternoon’s fun and exploration.Thanks to Ochils for the invite.
