    Wolftrax is great, but aviemore and the surrounding area is better for me.

    But i’m more a get out and follow your nose type rider as opposed to a trail centre rider..

    Laggan is probably the best trail centre in the UK.

    If your looking for someone to ride with you would probably be best asking over on TrailScotland – http://www.trailscotland.co.uk/forums/index.php

    Laggan – it’s 26 1/2 miles from Aviemore, so no where near an hour.
    I can ride up the fire road in 12mins, then do the ‘old’ Red. You can go back up and do the harder climb beyond the start of the ‘old’ red then do the newer red, bit like spooky wood. At points it’s so narrow it feels natural.

    I did Golspie, best built route in Scotland, last week. Amazing route. 7km descent. We did Balblair Black, for the first time, the next day. What an epic route ! lovely slab and rocky sections, nothing ever too hard. Short but very steep climbs. I did it on a hire Hardtail so a bit painful.

    Golspie and Balblair are quite far from Aviemore but you will probably never up there unless you take the time.

    Aye, I’ll need to stick close to Aviemore to maximise the family/selfish-biking ratio effectively, so Golspie a bit a schlep unfortunately. Next time!

    Smashing stuff all, many thanks, will deffo stick a post up and send some mails nearer the time.

    Loch Garten with the kids – check!

    Looking forward to it even more now! 😀

    Enjoy – if you can dump the family then Golspie and Kyle of Sutherland trails are both also ace!
