Mountain Biking on Knoydart

Back in 2016 we created this off-piste, specialized and individual biking locations on the Knoydart peninsula that is accessible only by boat, providing a strategic drop-off point and pick-up on the remotest location.

Mountain Biking trips involve a remote drop-off at Camusrory on the north shore of Loch Nevis, where a land rover track will lead you into the Rough Bounds of Knoydart and to paths that are overshadowed by the soaring peak of Sgurr na Ciche. This is where the adventure truly begins! After 550m hike-a-bike section up deer-stalking paths, we work our way down through flowing descents, along technical rock features, riding through undulating craggy landscapes and winding across the granite spines of the hills, while all the while your adventure continues to unfurl before you. The day’s off-roading is finished with a meandering single and double track that will lead us back to the remotest pub in Britain, The Old Forge or, alternatively, The Knoydart pottery & Tea room for local craic and refreshments.  Visitors can also Camp out under the stars or stay at selected accommodation providers on Knoydart. These places provide a warm and lovely place to rest after your wild trip with Minch Adventures as well as some great places to dine in the evenings, such as Doune Restaurant or River Cottage.

This trip is a pet project of Bill’s and it is only made possible by his love of mountain biking and his passion for delivering adventure in the remote areas of Knoydart. His Mountain Biking trips give would-be explorers a wholly unique way to experience the area, cutting deep into the heart of this West Highland wilderness; if it is rough adventures that you’re looking for, you will not be disappointed! Best trail conditions are from late April to early June.
