/ Scottish trail centres and downhill courses
Less of a detour could take you by Comrie Croft between Perth & Crianlarich. Google it to see their latest offerings. Red & black trails plus iirc a play park thing (probably the wrong phrase, not really my thing but a friend has been involved in developing it).
Be sure to pop into Glentress, then why not stop at Glencoe ski centre and do their DH track and their Red route which had alot of work done lately, ie new jumps and berms.
While I'm in the area I'm guessing there must be some decent natural trails around glencoe and ben nevis that are worth looking at. I don't know why I didn't ask about that in the first place, I usually prefer 'natural' trails to trail centres, but I guess it's easier just to follow the signposts when you don't know the area.
