Glenlivet Estate Bike Trails

Enjoy the purpose built mountain bike trails at the heart of the Glenlivet Estate, with not only fantastic fun packed, flowing single track trail, but spectacular scenery and stunning views as you ride. The blue trail is a great introduction to cross country riding, while the red trail provides challenges for the experienced. Historically this is illicit whisky distilling country where smuggling was rife so look out and be ready for anything!


The Blue Trail (9km) 

The blue route is perfect for novice to intermediate mountain bikers, it's a fun packed friendly route. There are climbs but you'll be rewarded with great downhill sections of sweet, flowing trail, with some exciting features but not too technical.

The Red Trail (22km) 

The red route offers thrills a plenty for the experienced rider. Climb up to the summit of Carn Daimh, offering breathtaking views of the Cairngorms, before plunging into the Glenlivet descent; 6.5km of single track downhill packed with features and jumps, including some black grade technical features for the expert mountain biker.
