    I cant comment on Scotland, although I do not doubt that it is probably the best from videos I have seen/ peoples comments, but I was impressed with the quality of singletrack riding in Wales, namely Afan when I went.

    Still can't beat natural riding in my eyes though.

    I'd venture that most singletrack in Wales is man-made in one way or another. Most of the paths, even really improbable ones, around here are the trails that miners used to follow to work and back.

    Interesting spin on 'man made', I hadn't thought about it like that :) The little riding I have done in Wales, at Afan as mentioned, I refer to 'man made' in the trail centre sense. Of the natural riding I do in the Peaks, I suppose the same sort of spin on man made could/will apply.

    Time to do some trail history research :)
