Just a little too short to get a Black rating, Carleton makes up for it with an unrelenting gradient. Leaving the coast by Lendalfoot you zig zag up past the ruined castle and onto the moor above Pinbraid Loch.

Wave at the fisherman if you have any energy left. From here you can head cross country to Barr via Colmonell, or even race down the Byne.
