Scott Sizing Guide Help and Thoughts on Scott Aspect 770

I'm pretty new to mountain biking (started a few months ago and haven't ridden since I was a kid) and am looking to get a proper bike, as the one I have now was a cheap £30 one from some guy on Gumtree.

Was going to get maybe the Carrera Vengeance or the Vulcan, but have now pretty much set my eye on the Scott Aspect 770, which I can get for about £295 if Evans Cycles price matches another site's offer.

Does anyone here own the Scott Aspect 770? How is it?

I won't be riding it on trails or doing jumps or tricks on it, but just riding on the path, a bit of road riding depending on where I am, and some gravel/dirt paths and whatnot.

I'm also a bit confused about Scott's own sizing guide. I'm 5 foot, 9 inches. I seem to be awkwardly in the middle, so not sure if I should go for the medium or the large frame size.
