Running in Scotland in November
So November usually sees the start of the cold weather, but does offer some lovely picture taking opportunities. The beanie hat comes out along with the gloves. Further afield this is the usual month for the NYC marathon. Back here in Scotland visit Scotland informs us that the average temperatures for Scotland in November are 8°C (46°F) to 14°C (57°F) . And of course British Summer time has ended.

Loch Venachar loop
Looking out on Loch Venachar from the running loop around the loch.
Meall Liath loop
November looking back at Ben Ledi during the Meall Liath loop. This route seems to have two scenarios, it is either stunning or a bit dull depending on the weather.
This is a lovely part of the Loch Lubnaig route. A good training route along the west side of the loch. Not documented on the web site as yet so watch this space.
Another route not currently on the web site. This one gives you a loop around Dumyat from the Logie Kirk car park.
Glen Finglas is just stunning in November and other months as well. This picture just at the start of the main climb section.
Another one from Glen Finglas and this time looking back towards the reservoir.
A route from Bannockburn that is not yet on the site. This image from the path along the top of Sauchie Craig
To Loch Arklet..
The beauty of Loch Lomond from the car park in Rowerdennan at the start of the run up to Loch Arklet. This car park is also the start of the Ben Lomond run available on the site.
Starting in the village of Callander a nice easy to follow route out to Carn Labhruinn alongside the forest of Glenartney. Interesting one this route as it feels longer than it actually is but it is a really nice run.
Glens Kendrum and Ogle
The marvellous loop through Glens Kendrum and Ogle. This picture heading downhill towards the old railway track just before the ford.
Loch Ard loop via Uamh Mhor
This is one from Aberfoyle that we do on a regular basis. This part is a short steep climb but it is just wonderful in the trees.
Loch Ard forest
We have several routes in Loch Ard forest and so this part features in one or two of the routes.
A route through Glen Fruin from Helensburgh with this picture being about half way round. We love this area and it is great country road running.
To Loch Arklet
The route went from Rowerdennan to Loch Arklet. Image shows Loch Lomond with the Loch Sloy power station on the other side of the loch. Bit of a cold day this time.
