Hi Y'all.
I have recently moved to Dundee for uni from Edinburgh, and have been really disappointed by the cycling club here. So I am looking for a few recommendations for trails, both win thin cyclable distance of Dundee or a train journey away. I am an advanced rider, I race Enduro so am looking for these sorts of trails. I can easily ride 70+ km in a day so distance is not an issue really!
If you would be willing to share your local routes it would be greatly appreciated! (may even provide cake if the route is up to scratch .
Cheers, Jack.

I had the opportunity to do a few rides near Braemar and Ballater during a Santa Cruz bike launch this past summer. There's some incredible terrain just north of you.

Here are a few maps that might help:
