Mountain biking around Dailly
On a recent visit to the Dailly area I discovered a
very nice single track in Glengee wood. Access to the
track is at MR298023 at a steel waymark, climb
through the felled area cross a muddy track and have
some fun but watch out for walkers as this is part of
the Dailly trails network. Another nice diversion to
add to the map above is along Kilgrammie upper track
and at a walkers gate on the left (mr240017) go down
some single track and return along the lower track
back to the main map route above.

Points of interest Lime stone mine on Cairn Hill
Route in brief
Distance 23 km, climb 200m, 100% ridable views north to Ben Lomond.
A small parking spot is available just prior to the moor turn off to Blair (MR334030). Cycle across the
public footpath along the side of Cairn hill. About half way across there is an old limestone mine and
the workings are large sloping caves worth a visit but you need to leave the bike and walk up the
working to find the mine.
Descend through Kilkerran estate (public right of way also see singltack diversion above) to the main
road, turn left to Dailly where refreshments can be obtained to your own taste.
Alternately you can cycle up the minor road past Lindsayston (MR 287009) taking a gate on the right
into the field (not the track by the farm for some reason), descend to the trees and a track then into
the woods at a stile to a single track run by the burn down to Dailly, also see Kilgrammie addition
Cross the river and turn right to Wallacetown and left to High Newlands ruin (MR271048), just after
which is the turn off right to Lochspouts. Watch out for the left turn after two thirds of a kilometre
or you will find yourself descending to Glenshalloch Woods (shorter alternative). Follow the easy
descent and tarmac roads to Crosshill. A tedious ascent leads back to the start point.
