Course AB25/4 - Garlogie/Torphins
An often used though not particularly liked out and back 25 mile time trial course starting some ten miles west of Aberdeen. Not regarded as a fast course. Getting under the hour on this one is possible, but you would have to be good.
 
The favoured strip is at Garlogie Hall, at the far end of the village from the start - allow 5 minutes to get to the start. The large lay-by opposite the start is also used, most frequently for confined events but occasionally for open events.
 
The finish is at the far end of Garlogie from the start.
