Mountain Bike Trails 

So many customers of Scottish Tourer want to embrace the outdoors and get away from the mundane routines of daily life. Scotland has some utterly amazing places to cycle and for those who want a bit more of an adrenaline rush they don’t have to look very far to find some fantastic days out. We have several motorhomes with larger garages for extra equipment and all our motorhomes have bike racks located on the back. If you are worried about safety of your bikes please discuss this with us for any extra information we can give you.

Where could we go? 

  • Comrie croft is just outside Crieff which is a short drive from our depot in Perth. You can hire bikes here if you don’t have your own and they have an excellent selection. They also have a shop should you forget or need anything while you are there. They have a café open during peak times and a smaller café during the quieter months, both serve excellent food and drinks at fantastic prices. Here you will find a fantastic skills track at the bottom by the carpark which is great for smaller children and adults alike to refine your skills. There is a few very small tracks for small children and then building up to some bigger runs. As you head up the hill there is a selection of easier runs and then onto harder ones depending on your experience. It makes for a wonderful day out for the whole family. There are plenty of places that pedestrians can walk to watch parts of the trails and its all very well signposted.  The carpark is larger however it can get busy so try to park so you know you can get out especially if you are in a larger motorhome.

  • Ballo woods located towards Dundee is another great place for those looking to get out and gain their adrenaline rush. These routes are not so child friendly as it is pretty steep in parts and the trails can be rutty and difficult to navigate especially if there has been high winds or rain they are mainly black routes and are technical. There are lots of lovely walks here to enjoy however and a loch to wander round should you decide to separate what you do that day. 
  • Pitmedden Forest in Fife is another fantastic place to get your miles in whether that be on foot or two wheels. This area is vast and has trails for all abilities and levels throughout the forests on mainly gravel tracks. There are two main carparks located either at Glenfoot or at Auchtermuchty in any of the laybys. The only top tip here is there are often lots of walkers so be careful on blind corners and when you are going downhill at top speed.
