I really enjoyed the black and bike park. I’d say that the black is quite a step up from the black at Glentress though (and most other trail centres really). The red isn’t nearly as technical. When we went last year we did 2 loops of the black, 1 of the red and a couple of the bike park. Was knackered by the end but it’s all fun so wanted to keep riding more!Posted 4 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
Ok nice one, worth the journey compared to going to Innerleithen then?
I wouldn’t do it as a special trip no. If I happened to be in the area then yes, I’d definitely visit.
Last time I was there I did 2 laps of the black, one of the red then another lap of linking up bits and pieces between them. It’s hard work – you know you’ve been out for a ride after that lot although it’s not massive miles.
Also, I crashed on one of the bits – was too busy trying to read the signpost warning of imminent death, technical features, massive descents etc placed by the side of the trail than actually looking at the trail.

Two questions, how good is it and how hard is it?
I am up visiting a pal in Edinburgh this weekend. Plan is to ride Glentress on Saturday and then he has suggested Laggan on Sunday. Firstly is it worth 2 1/2 hour journey from his house? Secondly how technically challenging is it? Whilst he is keen he did struggle with the black at glentress last time we did it and I’ve heard Laggan is meant to be fairly technical!

It is really good, I love the black and the reds are good fun but, what they said- fair old trek up. If you or your mate knows their way around innerleithen that’d probably make more sense.
Having said that it gets you into a different part of the country, there’s more to scotland than riding if you’re into that.Posted 4 years ago
Problem with this weekend in time constraints! Can’t get away until 6ish on Friday so heading up to his in Edinburgh to stay from Preston.
Seems like a better plan would be to make a full weekend of it another time and stay up near Aviemore and ride Laggan one day then something natural the other.
It’s the 2 1/2 hour drive back to Edinburgh then the further train journey back that’s putting me off to be honest!Posted 4 years agowhatnobeerMember
It’s worth a visit for sure, the black is a pretty epic piece of trail centre goodness. Lots of rock features that require a fair bit of commitment to ride cleanly. The reds are good fun too. Because it’s all quite short it’s very easy to do lots of little loops making the most of the fact that the climb up isnt too long. House of Bruar on the way back down the A9, sorted 😛
To be honest though, If I were you I’d just ride at Inners and save myself the 5 hours of driving. Inners is great and has a whole bunch of trails from the excellent XC loop to some mint Enduro and DH stuff.Posted 4 years agorichmtbSubscriber
Laggan is really nice but I wouldn’t make a special trip to go there. Its a long drive for anywhere.
If I was up for seeing that part of Scotland as part of a longer trip then yes I’d definitely try and include Laggan
I was actually there last week.
We were travelling to Inverness so stopping at Laggan for a loop of the red on the way up was a good way to stretch the legsPosted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
PS, for future plans Laggan is miles from everywhere apart from Fort William- if you’re ever driving up from Edinburgh it’s right on one of the two driving options. It’s also fairly straightforward to put it into a drive up further north- Golspie, Balblair etc, and all the natural riding you could want. A nice break from driving 😉Posted 4 years ago
