The day’s riding starts gently with some delightful tracks along the River Spean and then a short road section from Roy Bridge. The trail quickly changes to a mix of technical natural singletrack and Landrover tracks as we head east into the highlands. The quality of the riding is matched only by the spectacular views over Loch Laggan and The Grey Corries.

A sustained climb leads up to the white sandy beaches or Lochan an Hearba and then a fast descent pops you out at the magnificent Ardverikie Castle, set of the TV series Monarch of the Glen. The day finishes at Laggan Wolftrax, one of the Forestry Commission’s best trail centres.

Those who want to test themselves further can play for as long as they like on the challenging singletrack, fun park and raised timber sections.
