Mountain bike trips scotland

Scotland's mountain biking capital! Dumfries and Galloway is the home to some of the best mountain biking trips in Scotland and at the Galloway Activity Centre we have loads of options for those wanting to explore the best that Scotland has to offer by bike.

activity trip

This short Mountain Biking trip lasts roughly 1.5 hours. A power boat trip across Loch Ken starts this exhilarating adventure. On the opposite shore our Mountain Bike Leaders will guide you around a short, non-technical forest track and get you back in time for the next session.

In the Spring and Autumn we run our popular Night Rides. Travel through the heart of Scotland's only Dark Skies Park by night then whizz across Loch Ken in complete darkness back to the comfort of the centre.

mountain biking activity sessions

After you're kitted up with bikes and helmets there'll be no time to lose. We'll load the gear into a power boat and blast across Loch Ken where your instructor will guide you through gentle forest tracks taking in the scenery of the beautiful Galloway Forest Park.

The session will include approximately one hour of cycling on rough forest tracks. There's no hair raising descents or tricky obstacles but younger children might find it a struggle. We'd recommend 8 and upwards but as with all our activities it depends on the children

mountain biking activity sessions

We run Mountain Biking as an activity session all year around. Prior booking is essential and we ask for either full payment or a deposit to be left at the time of booking.
