We’re up in Inverness for a few days at New Year. Has anyone got any recommendations for kids trailer friendly routes in the area? Happy either off road or quiet road routes (all weather dependent!).
There are a few routes in Bike Scotland Book 2. One heads out east from Inverness to Culloden then over to Daviot and back via Loch Ashie. There’s another one on the back roads on the east side of Loch Ness. Also a loop on the Black Isle from Fortrose to Cromarty. Any thoughts on those would be appreciated.
There’s a fairly new cycle route that runs from Torbreck just outside Inverness to the village of Dores at the end of Loch Ness. Some of the route runs right along side the road but is on its own dedicated Tarmac cycle and walking lane. There is a good pub at dores but it’s very busy so if you plan to eat best to book.
There is a small fun cycling loop off road at the community woodland at Abriachan on the other side of Loch Ness. Some nice walks and a tree house for kids to play in.
Check first thing but the Aviemore – Glenmore road is currently closed (flooded) at Rothiemurchus Fish Farm. You should be able to get up if you come off the A9 at Kingussie and approach via Kincraig/Feshie Bridge/Inshriach
