Round-up of the 2019 Event in Attadale Forest

The first edition of the Scottish Mountain Marathon took place on the weekend of June 8-9th 2019 and the event centre was the lovely Attadale Gardens in the north-west highlands. Thanks to all the participants who came out to enjoy some excellent linear and score courses over the rough and wild terrain in the beautiful Attadale forest, but also the friendly atmosphere at the event centre and the scenic overnight campsite!
