About the Event

You are invited to a member-exclusive christmas mountain biking adventure in the heart of the Cairgorms! 

We are lucky to have been offered Muir Cottage, near the Linn of Dee by Braemar (click here for Cottage info) for a couple of nights. The location is great with both rings of the Cairngorms loop and the Deeside Trail right outside the door and also trails near Ballater not too far away. 

We have come up with a half-board itinerary so you can make the most of this adventure experience: 


18:00 - Arrive at Muir Cottage

19:30 - Chilli with garlic bread, beers / juice followed by drams by the fire


09:00 - Cooked & continental breakfast

10:00 to 16:00 - MTB trail no.1 Derry Lodge and The Hidden Glen

16:00 to 19:00 - Free time

19:30 - Dinner at Fyfe Arms Hotel


09:00 - Bring your own breakfast

10:00 to 14:00 - MTB trail no.2 Falls of Garbh Allt and Braemar

We keep our promise that we will never charge a fee for leading member rides or hosting events which have no cost to Scottish Adventure Cycling. Given the itinerary for this event, there are obvious costs involved for food and accomodation which we will arrange on your behalf. So here is what we will provide: 

  • Dorm-style accomodation for two nights (please bring your own sleeping bag and towels)
  • Evening meal on the Friday
  • Beers, Diet Coke and a bottle of Whisky (single malt mind, none of yer rubbish!)
  • Breakfast on the Saturday including tea, coffee, milk and sugar
  • Wood and coal for the fire

We are super chuffed to have an offer from our Business Partners EGuide Scotland for this trip. They are offering 10% discount on eMTB hire and they'll deliver and collect from Muir Cottage, it really doesnt get any easier than this. Please contact EGuide Scotland direct quoting the reference 'SACC Muir Cottage' to secure your booking.

We will add more information about what kit we suggest you should take nearer the time but one thing is for sure - you wont want to miss this epic adventure in the heart of the Cairngorms and the magical landscape we will be living in for a couple of days. You will definitely need a camera...
