"the line is 22miles(36ish km) and runs from the port town of port dunbrek out west into the scottish highlands ending up on the banks of loch portsand. i have to give credit to both the boys at vmd for the superb track used in the route (go get it) and especially big thanks to dmdrake whose trees make this route come alive."
