Nothing quite beats the thrill of saddling up and racing over the vast, sprawling hillsides of the Scottish Highlands, followed by kicking back in your luxury suite at the Dunalastair Hotel Suites. Store your cycle securely overnight, relax and enjoy good local produce. A perfect sleep awaits after a day of physical activities.

Based deep in the heart of the Highlands, Loch Rannoch itself is a popular destination for mountain biking in Scotland, offering both gentle, easy routes for those laid-back rides, and gruelling trails for the more adventurous cyclists.

Loch Rannoch Circular

By far the most famous cycling route in the area, the Loch Rannoch Circular is a relatively easy 36 mile ride, taking you from your Scottish boutique hotel and out towards the famous Bridge of Gaur in the deserted hamlet known as Braes of Rannoch.

A rare piece of Scottish history quietly tucked away in the middle of wild, rolling hills, Braes of Rannoch has played a key role in several major events in the country’s past, dating all the way back to the Jacobite rising of 1745.

The hamlet -and the bridge itself- are just one of many local landmarks worth visiting as you take on the Loch Rannoch circular, all before returning back to your luxury holiday accommodation here in Perthshire.

The Circular (also known by the locals as ‘The Loop’) is just one of the route worth checking out on your Scottish cycling holiday.

The local Rannoch Forest, as well as the remote trails around nearby Blair Atholl, Glen Lyon, and Aberfeldy all offer an exhilarating off-road experience for those looking for a little more action when mountain biking in the Scotland.

In between rides, you’ll enjoy the height of luxury living thanks to our generously spacious boutique hotel suites, large, comfortable beds, and delicious homemade food served up in our fine dining restaurant, making it the perfect place to recharge and refuel before heading back out on the trails.
