Scotland Mountain Biking – Wild Trails Vol.2 features 24 new and classic mountain bike rides across Scotland.

Split into three sections – Southern & Central Scotland, North West Scotland & Islands, and North East Scotland – Wild Trails Vol.2 has been researched, ridden and written by Scottish Mountain Bike Guide Phil McKane, and each route features clear and easy to use Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 maps, easy-to-follow directions, details of distance, timings and difficulty gradings, and refreshment stops and local knowledge.
The book is illustrated with stunning action photography from top pro photographer Andy McCandlish, and also features a detailed Appendix.
