Fort William routes – guide book?
Not sure if this is one you are asking about, I cant find my copy, but I visit Fort William every year and I have done a lot of riding up there, so I know a lot of trails in the area.Posted 7 years agoesselgruntfuttockMember
TBH there's not many routes from Ft William, you can do the Nevis Range stuff to your hearts content but actual routes are a bit thin on the ground. One decent ride would be from the West end car park, straight over the roundabout & up the hill (Achintore Road) basically follow this to the Mamore Road & on to Kinlochleven (where you could do the Ciaran Path) or if your'e feeling up to it head past the Mamore Hotel & on to Luibeilt then come down Glen Nevis but thats boggy at the top & pushy at the bottom. Myself I'd come back along the Mamore road & join the WHW back to Glen Nevis.Posted 7 years agoMounty_73Member
I have friends up in Fort William, so I get to ride with a few locals, so I dont really remember the routes, I just get to ride them. 🙂
It depends on what kind of routes/trails you are looking for, natural or the usual way marked stuff, most of which can be found here;
My advice would be get an OS, along with the book and just go off and explore. Also pop into offbeat bikes in the high street for some local knowledge.
If you travel a bit further up north, then visit Laggan Wolftrax, worth the drive in my opinion, one of my fav centres.
Hope this helps 🙂Posted 7 years ago
Laggan – out of GT, K'treee blacks and reds it's a close 2nd to Golspie. It's about 35mins from the Fort. Do Upper red, lower red, latte, then lower red again. If Comrie Croft was three times longer……..
I have found those maps – they have extensive written descriptions and os maps, A5 size I got them at nevis range but they are in the shop – OFF BEAT BIKES – in the Fort.
Have funPosted 7 years ago
