Running

Running is very popular. Everybody who loves this sport knows the tracks in his home area. Running in Scotland is not always easy going. You will quite often having to run on open country roads, with remarkable traffic. Sidewalks are quite rare. Roads are narrow. Please do always run on the right-hand side of the road. Be careful in the curves ! It is a good idea to run with a safety vest or something in bright colours at least. Never run in the darkness !
