Cathkin Braes

Glasgow is the proud host of the Commonwealth Games 2014 and Cathkin Braes Country Park is due to host the mountain bike competitions.

The circuit will not only provide a venue for the games but will be a permanent mountain biking facility and legacy of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. It offers an open space to enjoy activities such as kite flying and horse riding, as well as a suitable area for model aircraft clubs.
