Description:-
This is a three mountain bike trail network set just north of Loch Ness. It does tend to be a more family orientated centre but has a fun obstacle course beside the main car park and a short 4 Km section of red graded trail.

There are a fair number of road crossings and to get from the green trail and obstacle course you need to change car parks (further down the access road) or cycle along the road to the blue and red trails.

At the return end of the circular blue run there is a “Jump Park” incorporating single and double jumps, table tops and berms.

All mountain bike trails except the red are a “footpath” style managed surface.

The Green is a very easy “family ride” style trail, the Blue is a small step up from the Green and the Red offers an undulating single track experience with a few minor obstacles.

Hardcore mountain bike riders would probably find this centre a bit tame but it is an ideal area for newcomers to get a taste of mountain biking in Scotland.

Not many miles and very little elevation gain/loss, but a good wee route nonetheless. Offers a nice balance between the fast, gravelly blue trail featuring the odd wee jump, and the more natural red-g... read whole comment...

Description:-
we did all the trails which are very loose & gravelly and not used very much, there is a Red section called Dragonfly which is natural trail lots of slippy roots etc.. but mostly blue and fast with some good views to the North. The jump park is over grown but still useable. This I think is a good alternative to the puffer if you are in the vacinity of Inverness maybe on the way home from further North.

Not enough on offer that I'd actually recommend making a trip just to go to Abriachan, but definitely worth a visit if you're heading along the A82 or riding the Great Glen Way. And make sure to go to... read whole comment...
