Cycling and Mountain Biking

At Altnaharra we welcome cyclists who are just passing through, maybe on their way to either Lands’ End or John O’ Groats, and can offer covered, secure storage for your cycles and rest and hospitality for the cyclist. We have low cost accommodation in our LEJOG Cabin which, if you are just passing through and need a place to stay for one night, is perfect.

For the more serious mountain biker you will be pleased to know that the Highlands has been recognised by the IMBA (International Mountain Bike Association) as one of the great (and award winning) biking destinations. They are not wrong. The Highlands offers an abundance of trails, forest and wilderness riding to suit all levels and abilities, while the low population up here ensures quiet and peaceful road cycling. For more information on cycling Scotland and the Highlands go to and look through the activities page.

Please note that we do not offer cycle hire.
