Cycling trails in and around ballater

Hi,

We are coming up to Ballater next month, hoping for some skiing at Glenshee or the Lecht if there is any snow, but should we bring the bikes with us in case we can't ski, are there many mountain bike trails in and around Ballater?

Cheers

Yes there are bike trails in and around Ballater.

Go and see Richard and James at Cyclehighlands which is based in Ballater next to Glenmuick Church in the centre of the village. It’s hard to miss! They’ll give you all the information you need about cycle trails in the area.

http://www.cyclehighlands.com/index.html

The Deeside Way is a new cycle walking way in the area and here is more information about it

www.cyclegrampian.co.uk/trail/deeside.html

In addition the Walk Highlands site lists many walks some of which are suitable for mountain biking too

This site might be of interest to you as well

Hope this helps.

No, not snowing. Just cold with a very sharp wind at the moment and rain forecast for tomorrow.
