Mountain Biking

There are numerous mountain bike routes possible from Gask house, to suit most tastes and fitness levels. These are mainly on forest and  landrover tracks, with a few quiet single-track and B-roads thrown in. We've highlighted a few below.

We'd recommend at least a hardtail MTB, although some routes would be suitable for hybrids. We have secure bike storage and have a good selection of bike tools with a bike stand available, in case you need to do any running repairs. 

 

There are a number of places in Inverness that hire out bikes and we'd be happy to help advise you where to go, although we would recommend that you book a bike in advance of your stay, especially during the busy periods.
