Forrestburn Speed Hill Climb
Forrestburn is the first purpose-built speed hill climb track to be built in the United Kingdom since the construction of the facility at Brooklands in 1907.

The track layout was designed by the founding MSCC committee members with assistance from Derek Ongaro of the RAC MSA and former Scottish Hill Climb Champion Kenny Allan with advice from many others on safety and marshal requirements. The track is 1030 metres in length rising from 221m to 246m AOD with a maximum gradient of 1:4. Forrestburn hosts rounds of the Scottish Hillclimb Championship as well as Production Car Trials, Autotests and Track Nights.
