A classic slice of UK mountain biking that dives into the very heart of the Scottish Highlands on a series of ancient drove roads, loch-side routes, forest tracks and twisting singletrack.
 
Over six days of riding the route takes us 235 miles from Loch Hourn on the west coast to Montrose on the east coast. This is a route that is varied throughout and, while achievable for fit intermediate riders, there are plenty of technical sections which will challenge more experienced riders and is perfect for those up for a mountain biking challenge.
 
We start in style with day one’s major climb rewarded with great views back over the dramatic Cullins on the Isle of Skye, which paints the picture for the rugged Scottish landscapes that follow.
 
On reaching the Great Glen we follow the Caledonian Canal, have the opportunity for some monster spotting at Loch Ness and as the miles and days pile up, we cross the Monadhliath Mountains dropping into the Spey Valley and the Cairngorms.
 
From here on in the trip heads deep into the Glenmore Forest Park, passing through the remote Braes of Abernethy and tackles some river crossings along the way. As we straddle the side of the majestic Cairngorm Mountains, we are rewarded with a night in Tomintoul; a 17th century village and the highest in the Highlands - one of our many chances for a wee dram.
 
We end our off road trails with a superb woodland singletrack to Edzell and then after final night of celebrations, pedal the final few miles the next day to the coast at Montrose.
 
If you've already done this classic ride, and were bitten by the bug - why not have a look at our Highlands Celtic Crossing trip, from Bettyhill to Stirling Castle in the heart of Scotland - different trails, different places and different experiences - even more epic!
