This Award celebrates those accommodation providers who provide a great service to mountain bikers in staying in Scotland.
This year the shortlist was a straight out competition between 2017 winner Cleikum Mill Lodge Innerleithen and the 2016 winner Comrie Croft
Comrie Croft is an eco-farm nestled at the foot of a mountain in rural Perthshire. In the 1990s, Comrie Croft was a farm failing in the face of global market forces. As part of a successful employee and community buyout in 2008 a vision for regeneration was set out: to bring about economic, environmental and community revival by using the land to create new symbiotic opportunities for enterprise, recreation and sustainable living.
Over the past 10 years our team has worked with passion and commitment to fulfill this vision, building multiple cooperating micro-enterprises under the Comrie Croft banner. These include a mountain bike trails centre, hostel/venue, wild-style campsite and glamping, an organic-principle market garden, farmshop, café and more.
Cleikum Mill Lodge provides value for money quality self catering accommodation in the heart of Innerleithen with shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants within a 2 minute walk.
