Minchmoor and Plora Wood

About This Route

A lovley ride with some great views up on Minch moor. This starts and finishes at Traquair hall, parking is tight but you would get a trailer or small lorry in.

You can start the route from lots of different points but this way you have a cafe stop option half way round!

Forest track can be as confusing as open moor and hill so please take an OS map and download the route file.
