Both my 2 offspring are adrenaline junkies and my son is a downhill racer. We had a fantastic day here with so much fun - mainly them laughing at me and my screams! I found the bike a bit "twitchy" but I am not used to riding trails. Great family fun and superb food in the cafe with friendly service.

The red route is miles of smooth track interspersed by a few rock drop offs and one steep rock descent. Having done the reds in other places i feel this is essentially a blue route except for the length and climbing. All obstacles can be avoided by anyone who doesn't feel confident to do them.

This was our first intermediate ride with two kids aged 7 and 9. The centre is set in what I can only describe as breathtaking scenery . We did the blue trail which we all loved. Great for both kids and adults who want to feel like a kid again. We smiled and whooped all the way round. The staff... More

Took my two boys and wife here for their second go at mountain biking. Arranging the bikes, picking them up and getting going couldn't have been easier and the bikes were great for all of us (and very reasonably priced too). The blue trail was perfect for us - plus the fact that the weather was perfect, giving us some... More

I was not sure what to expect. Friendly staff, nice bikes and easy rental process was followed by gorgeous views and beautiful wildflower filled forest trails. Great way to work up a sweat for the morning.

We went here as an extended family.. Ages from 4 to late 40s. The best downhill trails I've done in a very long time.. The boys all did the red, youngest being 9yrs. Girls did the blue twice (Although only once for youngest at 4) Fabulous day had by all. Food & coffees were lovely.. We will all be back... More

I have tried most of the trail centres in Scotland. I can say this was my favourite. The red route is a slog getting up and took me a fair while- obviously not as fit as I thought. The scenery is amazing once you get to the top and there's even a picnic bench to get your snack sorted. I... More

Great mountain biking trails for beginner/intermediate level and well worth at least one visit for more experienced riders. The trails are aimed at the holiday/occasional rider and are perfect for that. However, they actually flow better the faster you go, so worth having a couple of laps. If you are a reasonably fit regular rider, the red shouldnt take much... More

Emailed ahead to reserve 2 bikes. It helps if you know the frame size, I ended up estimating this based on height. Arrived and our bikes were ready for us to use. Got a quick introduction and then we were off. We received a small backpack with a repair kit and trail map. The start is on the blue trail... More
