Over 20 miles (35 km) of purpose-built trails wind through Laggan Forest, with superb views of the Monadhliath hills on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park.

There are routes from an easy-going green trail to a black run that’s probably the most technical bit of single-track in Scotland. In the bike park you can ride big berms and tabletop jumps. Check out our trail map to plan your rides.

You don’t have to ride a bike to enjoy Laggan: the route to Dun da Lamh hill fort makes a great walk as well as a cycle ride. It’s one of the best-preserved hill forts in the Highlands, with impressive walls and superb views of the countryside around.

Working in partnership with Forestry Commission Scotland, local community group Laggan Forest Trust has developed a number of other trails to explore in the forest.

A new addition in the summer of 2014 is a set of semi-permanent orienteering courses, located in the woodland around the Wolftrax car park. Courses range from all abilities and easy for beginners to hard for experienced orienteers.

Laggan makes a great base for exploring the beautiful countryside around. There are high, rounded hills, remote glens and a superb range of wildlife. Laggan Community web has details of things to do and places to stay.
