Get your Santa on and get up Conic - December Route
On the back of our November Route with Glasgow Trailfest we spoke to Jo and Ryan and thought we'd try and temp you out again during December.
So here's another route to take a crack at, same logic applies: get out there, run it, track it on Strava, take some footage, and tells us what you think, tagging all the usual channels for both FYA and Glasgow Trailfest - oh and please include the hashtag #runsnowy for extra points!!!
Santa will be watching who's been naughty and nice and there will be some OMM gear under your tree for the best festive story, picture and/or video.
For those who got lost on Whangie Burncrooks, you'll be glad to hear this route is a darn sight easier to follow than Novembers and it's one we've done before a 15km Conic Loop - A couple of hints and tips below and the Strava Route included too, but really if you get lost on this your probably safer indoors - Its West Highland Way for Pete's sake!!
It starts with a drive to Drymen unless you fancy stretching the legs further on the WHW beforehand.
From the Square in Drymen head North up
Once you come down off Conic, head through
you get to
Milton of Buchanan you head left
here is that while you are figuring
the main road to regain the WHW back to you start
One final piece of guidance - when you head back up the hill from Milton of Buchanan, make sure you don't turn off the trail until you regain the WHW and turn right at the four way crossing to retrace your steps to the finish at the car park.
As always the usual disclaimers apply – running the route is at your own risk, you need to be fit to so and carry appropriate kit and provisions to do so safely. Remember its getting cold and slippy out there so take extra care.
