The wonderful “Bike Glenlivet” mountain bike trails are up and running.
After six years in the making the superb Glenlivet mountain bike trails area is now fully open.
Comprising a blue trail that would suit anyone and a red trail for more experienced bikers, we are spoilt with superb flowing, swoopy single track with well constructed trail features and one of the longest single track descents in the country at 6.5km from the top of the red.
Alice and I had a recent trip to try the runs out and were simply blown away by the quality and design of the tracks. Also a well deserved visit to the Coffee Still at the base area provided much needed post ride sustenance including fantastic cake!
Parking is by pay and display. There are also toilet facilities available as well as bike hire courtesy of Base Camp Bikes of Grantown. The base is a short six mile drive or cycle from Lochranza Cottage and is a must visit.
At Lochranza we have an external hose for bike washing and secure lock up for bikes if required. Check out the recent review in MBUK magazine and if you don’t believe the hype, try it for yourself, you will not regret it.
