  • It runs along the western side of the beautiful Cairngorms National Park to link Calvine, Dalwhinnie, Aviemore and Boat of Garten.
  • The route also forms the northern section of the long-distance Lochs and Glens Way route between Glasgow and Inverness.
  • Cairngorms National Park is home to some of the United Kingdom's most unique and endangered wildlife including species such as the Golden Eagle, Red Squirrel and Scottish Wildcat.
  • It's also a hub for a wide range of outdoor activities. And towns such as Aviemore are an ideal base for exploring the numerous mountain biking and hiking trails throughout the beautiful landscapes of the park.
  • The route is surrounded by breathtaking mountain landscapes and dense forests.
  • National Cycle Network Route 7 crosses heather-covered moorland along a mixture of traffic-free paths and quiet road sections. And has numerous opportunities for shorter, family-friendly day trips.
  • Highlights along the route include the mighty Pass of Drumochter, the historic steam-powered Strathspey Railway, the 'osprey village' of Boat of Garten, the Highland Folk Museum, Ruthven Barracks and numerous world-famous distilleries

Please note: there are gaps in National Cycle Network Route 7 west of Aberfeldy, between Pitlochry and Calvine and north and south of Carrbridge.

You don't have to take on a major route you can simply enjoy some popular biking destinations at your own pace whether MTB or BMX!

  • MTB at Wolftrax Laggan
  • Road Cycling - why not try the Etape Caledonia Route around Loch Rannoch or The Spey Way
  • A newly launch Pump park is open near Carrbridge/ Aviemore
  • Dunkeld, 15 miles North of Perth is surrounded by superb mtb trails, largely based in and on the nearby Craigvinean Forest, Newtyle Hill and Birnham Hill.
  • Nevis Range by Fort William hosts the Downhill MTB Championships

Scotland, with its forests, moorland and mountain and progressive access legislation, is a world-class destination for mountain biking. It’s not only the landscape that makes the Park a great destination for biking, it’s the wealth of paths and trails and the four mountain bike centres Glenlivet, Laggan, the Lecht, and Tarland.

To find your next ride the Highland E-Guide is a great place to start too.
