Glen Feardar

Level C

Sun 26th Jun 2016

Type of event: District-(C)


Please note no dogs allowed at Glen Feardar.  Also late information: far start is 1500m from registration, not 700m as previously posted.

Tucked away in a ‘hidden valley’ just four kilometres west of Balmoral, Glen Feardar has that classic Deeside combination of open hillside, birch woodland, mature plantation and patchy natural pine forest.   All with the added bonus of views that become increasingly spectacular the higher your course takes you.   For those with a feeling for history, you may also want to reflect on the numerous stony ruins as you run through the many deserted crofting townships that are scattered through this once densely populated but now totally uninhabited area.   More probably, you will be wrestling with the challenge of working out which of the many ruins has the control beside it!
