The trail network has been designed to offer something for all abilities of rider
from funpark (blue), intermediate (red) and advanced (black). The funpark is guaranteed to put a smile on your face with berms,
table tops and double jumps that drops you back to the car park, don't worry if you're not ready to "go big" just yet as
the park has been designed to cater for most abilities of rider. A shuttle service will be on offer at
the weekends transporting riders to the top of the funpark if you just fancy going downhill all day. Further information
on the trail network can be found on the MTB trails page. A coin operated bike wash facility is available next to the MTB shop.
Kids Mountain Bike Club:
We are now running a kids mountain bike club. The aim of the club is to help introduce children to the sport of mountain biking
and also improve the skills of those already involved in the sport. An SMBLA qualified quide will run the club every Saturday
morning from 9.30-11.00am. Due to the grade of trails currently on offer at the centre we have set an age limit of 10+, consideration
would be given to younger children with suitable bike handling skills. A suitable mountain bike and safety equipment are required.
We do have a limited number of childrens bikes available for hire. The club must be booked in advance, please contact us
for further details.
We are open for night riding every Tuesday throughout the winter from November through to March. The cafe will be open with
hot food and drink on offer until 10pm. If you don't have your own lights we have systems available for hire. Please contact
us for further details.
This route is right on our doorstep so why not come up for the weekend and combine
a classic all day cross country ride with some purpose built trails. The total distance from Fort Augustus to Laggan is 41.6KM.
You will require OS Landranger maps 34 Fort Augustus and 35 Kingussie although navigation is relatively simple once on the
route. The route is not for the most part that technical but it is a true high mountain route and should be treated as such
by carrying the appropriate equipment.
As this is a point to point route transport can be a problem if you have to
leave a vehicle at one end or draw straws to see who misses out on the ride. We realise this can be a problem and are now
offering a shuttle service from the BaseCamp car park at Laggan out to Fort Augustus.
Standard Transfer - £15 per
