Multi-Day Mountain Biking on the Wild Highland Trail

Are you looking to explore Scotland like never before? Do you want a physical challenge that will push you out of your comfort zone with the support of a guide? Then Wilderness Scotland’s incredible seven day guided mountain bike tour is the trip for you.

You’ll start the adventure in Fort William before transferring over to Port Appin and warming yourself up on the trails there. You will then travel 32km through technical mountain trails and finish the day in the spectacular mountain region of Glencoe, home to the famous Buchaille Etive Mor (Scotland’s most photographed mountain) and the dominating Aonach Eagach Ridge (the narrowest in Britain).

The second and third days of the adventure will travel 42km deep into the wild highlands, where you’ll taste some of Scotland’s wildest landscapes, dine in the UK’s remotest restaurant and sleep in an incredible mountain hut completely cut off from the modern world. After waking up on the banks of a loch and taking in the mountain air you’ll continue this epic experience by climbing into the ancient Ardverikie forest, before descending down to Loch Laggan and then on to your accommodation for the next few days for a total of 72 spectacular kilometres.

How can I experience the highlands by Mountain Bike?

Sign on to a Wilderness Scotland mountain biking expedition and experience a guided adventure travelling throughout the gorgeous Scottish Highlands.

Waking up on the fourth day of this incredible guided adventure, you’ll experience something a little bit different by exploring some quieter single track throughout Speyside. You’ll take lunch in the lovely little village of Kincraig before dropping into the larger mountain resort town of Aviemore where you can shop, eat and drink for the afternoon. This day is the easiest going, with 41km of riding and a shuttle back to your accommodation in Newtonmore, where you can rest up before the final few days of adventure.

Days five and six will see you head into the incredible Cairngorms, firstly through the prehistoric landscape of Glen Feshie over to the village of Braemar on the first day, and then onto your final day of mountain biking, through Ballochbuie Forest where wild stags roam and up onto the shoulder of Lochnagar, a giant, craggy mountain with a fast and rocky descent. You’ll drop down into the valley here before heading to your hotel accommodation and spending your final night with the group. Relax the next morning before being transferred back to the city of Perth, where you can head home with tired legs and a mind full of memories!
