EL MTB#10, Newbyth Core Path

A recent addition is the  section of Core Path through Newbyth Estate, 
The Estate with its prestigious Mansion house originally owned by the Baird Family is actually now flats today with an internal courtyard after a fire ravaged the building, old school friend Clarky once lived there,
The fields are farmed by Lochouses farm, and the lands of Whitekirk were once included in the Estate Policies, and you would think Whitekirk with it's historic church -the seat of the oldest Church of Scotland, would have been an Estate of it's own, but the Estate included Whitekirk Mains Farm and Newmains Farm,

The all weather surface is raised and drained  for year round dry and mud free cycling, unlike the previous mud fest of a track...

Wee film, Song is `Adrift` by Tycho
