A waymarked mountain biking network has been developed on the picturesque Glenlivet Estate. This comprises six trails of between 6 and 17 miles, and two shorter trails of under 2 miles which follow waymarked walking routes.

The Estate lies between the Ladder and the Cromdale Hills in the Cairngorms National Park, and is formed by the two broad straths of the Rivers Avon and Livet. It covers approximately 23,000 hectares and is part of the Crown Estate. Click on the Glenlivet Estate Website link at the foot of this page (under Useful Links) for full details of these trails.
Most of the routes have a combination of farm, forest and hill tracks with sections of public road. Surface conditions are generally firm, but some tracks can be muddy and rutted in places. The public road sections are generally quiet with mostly local traffic, but please take care where using the busier A939 sections. The trails are marked with a cycling symbol and route number. Walking routes overlap in places, and where this occurs waymarkers include both walk numbers and the cycling symbol. Click on the Glenlivet Estate Website and the Cycle Trails Leaflet Links at the foot of this page to obtain full details of these trails.
