Highland Wildcat - Golspie

The longest singletrack descent in the UK at around 7000m of superb trail including natural slab rock and sandstone aggregate.

The trails have been designed with everyone in mind and are “stacked” such that the more difficult routes can only be reached by cycling up through the easier sections.

Families of mixed ability and novice riders may find it easier to start from the Big Burn car park just outside the village to the north.

From here there is the option of going via Big Burn mixed woodlands towards Ben Bhraggie on a blue graded route or otherwise into Dunrobin

Wood on an easy green route on low ground, joining paths and tracks in the wider countryside or coast.

For inexperienced riders keen to reach the summit of “The Ben”, there is a double track all the way from the blue trail that leads off at the crossroads in the forest. Please take care of changeable weather conditions, ride safely and responsibly (showing respect for other users) and read the following grading summary to ensure that you choose a route that matches your ability.

The trails are waymarked and are signed to ensure that you are aware of the grade of trail chosen. The more difficult features will have an easier escape route or option to allow skills development, or just an easier ride!
