Some more detailed plans. I don't have permission to post the sneaked pic of the plans to which I was privy so I have redrawn them.

Should be fun. Construction starts on 3rd Feb, aim to finish by the end of Feb.

Hmm, you need to find a way to incorporate the water tower. Helter skelter?
Pleasure spreads out on the map and the knapsack is full of joy.

And today was the official opening. It is a blue trail (mostly) - there were families going round with kids in child seats and buggies. At least one road bike. Absolutely mobbed as it was opened by Shona Robison MSP who promised (on camera) to bring her bike up and have a go.

Something for everyone - easy enough to get round (bar the two tabletops) but challenging enough that it is easy to push a bit too much and there are trees, rocks and a swamp that will bite.

If you are ever in Dundee and fancy a shot - give it a go.
