Mountain Biking

Mountain biking is a popular activity with some amazing local trails available. Whether you are looking for a skills session, a leisurely cross-country trail or a serious day of jumps & tricks, our centres have something for everyone. Barcaple is located close to the 7stanes Trails of Kirroughtree, Mabie and Dalbeattie in Dumfries and Galloway, and Nethybridge uses Laggan WolfTrax and its own on-site course to give you a thrilling experience. The terrain around Ardgour is perfect for a challenging day on your bike, with stunning scenery and a variety of trails for you to enjoy, including Nevis Range, the venue for the Mountain Bike World Cup.
