Glenlivet mountain bike trails to reopen in time for Easter


The Glenlivet Mountain Bike Centre is reopening on 30 March 2018, following closure over winter for essential tree felling works by managers Crown Estate Scotland.

The 9km Blue trail will be open along with a partially reopened Red trail and the Coffee Still Café, providing essential before and after homemade meals and snacks, along with bike and equipment hire. The Blue trail is ideal for families and beginners.

Vicky Hilton, Crown Estate Scotland’s Countryside Manager for the Glenlivet Estate said: “We’re looking forward to opening the trail again for Easter, following necessary forestry work over the winter months. There is still timber removal going on around the red trail, so it will remain partially closed while lorries are still operating in the area.

“BikeGlenlivet has led to so many people discovering the natural beauty of the Glenlivet Estate, while doing something that is both exciting and active. Since 2013, we’ve had more than 47,000 visitors and we’re very pleased to continue to provide the best visitor experience we can.”

The Coffee Still Café, run by Tomintoul’s Dianne Dunlop and Steve Sacks, will re-open alongside the blue trail on 30 March. The couple’s local, home-cooked produce is popular among visitors, helping provide a great family day out.

Glenlivet Estate is a popular location for outdoor enthusiasts and visitors, attracting people from across the UK and beyond to enjoy an unrivalled visitor experience with a variety of activities including walking, running, cycling and wildlife watching as well as whisky tasting at local distilleries.
