Cycling in the Highlands
Ardgour is a great location for a cycling enthusiast or just someone who enjoys a gentle pedal with a wide variety of road cycling, forestry tracks or mountain trails that cater for all abilities.
With sweeping B roads leading down the Ardnamurchan peninsula and meandering round Loch Eil, (part of sustrans route 78), you will always be guaranteed stunning scenery, breathtaking views and the comfort of never being too far from the next village and rest stop.
There is an interlinking network of signposted forestry tracks throughout the estate. Some of these tracks are mildly challenging with hilly climbs, particularly worth the effort is the ‘mast’ road which leads up to a viewpoint giving a 360 degree panorama of the surrounding mountains, including Ben Nevis.
Throughout the main glens there are plenty of tracks, some of which are little more than animal trails, quickly leading you out into the wilderness, past ruined crofts and remote lochs.
With the Home of the World Mountain Bike Cup on our doorstep at Nevis Range – Ardgour really is a mountain bikers paradise.
If you staying with us we can arrange to have Bikes hired locally dropped off ready and waiting for you at your cottage Cuil moss.
