The Cairngorms offer so much more than just the high summits.  Exploring the network of forest trails and rugged passes by mountain bike is an unforgettable experience.  It's also a great option for days when strong winds on the tops make getting up high impossible.

Whilst there are a few sample guided mountain bike rides outlined below, we'll agree a bespoke plan before we set off which matches your aspirations, fitness and riding ability.

Pricing: £80 for a half day for up to two people, additional £10 per person thereafter (up to a maximum of six people). Or £140 per day for up to two people, additional £10 per person thereafter (up to a maximum of six people).

Bike Hire: Bike hire is not included, although I can help you make arrangements with local bike shops.
