Cape Wrath Mountain Bike Trail

by David Wilson October. 04, 2016 10071 views

The Cape Wrath Trail is a 250 mile backcountry trail from the foot of Ben Nevis, Scotland highest mountain to the very top of Scotland at the wild and beautiful Cape Wrath Lighthouse.  The challenge undertaken in May 2016 by David Wilson and Victoria Kimber was to discover if it was possible to find a continuous 'ride-able' trail on mountain bikes that avoided roads, was not highly technical and passed through the wild heart of the Scottish Highlands

Old Drove trails, Forest Tracks and new Hydro Roads make this route possible
