There is no lavishly furnished visitors centre to sit around and discuss how ‘gnarly’ the trail was, or how you railed the berms down the hill.

    Erm, i made them on the left as you are heading north along the A9.

    Coffee Bothy does excellent food, and the trail is well worth making the effort to ride twice.

  2. Will be up there with some regularity from September onwards, as folks now have a house on the peninsula across the firth. I’m quite excited to have this facility in proximity, and will be looking forward to trying it out, along with others in the area.
