  Highland Mountain Bike Trails

This is the gateway to the essential knowledge required for the planning and enjoyment of your mountain biking in Scotland.

The buttons on the right take you to the main trail groups. Within a group there can be a number of trails, each one has a button on it’s group page. There are location maps throughout this section to help you find the trail heads and PDF maps where available. You will need a PDF reader installed for the trail maps.       

This is the subject that usually results in a big yawn but seriously, the sport is dangerous and bad things can happen if it all goes wrong. Although there will always be a risk of serious injury or death you can do a lot to greatly reduce this risk.

1/ Never try anything beyond your capabilities; build up to it with training and experience.

2/ Always ensure your bike is in an excellent state of repair and that it has the ability to withstand what you are about to do.

3/ Wear adequate safety gear for your ride.

This should always include a properly fitting and robust helmet, gloves, eye protection and shoes that match your choice of pedal. You may need to add arm, leg and chest protection; especially if you are riding difficult to severe trails.

4/ Always wear clothing suited to the prevailing weather conditions and carry a drink. You will get cold if you have to stop for any length of time and therefore should make adequate provision for this.
