Bike Hire

Aviemore and Laggan Wolftrax

Mountain Biking is one of the most popular activities in the Aviemore area and there’s a huge variety of trails from gentle forest rides to grand expeditions through the Cairngorms.
One of the special things about riding here are that the easier family routes can be just as spectacular as the more expert routes.
We use our extensive knowledge of the local trails to ensure you have a fun, safe ride, and don’t waste time wondering where to go, and if you’re looking for a fantastic trail centre experience we have a Hire Centre at Laggan Wolftrax

Bothy Bikes is situated in Dalfaber, where you can get access to the trail network via Sustrans Route 7 and the Speyside Way. One of our most popular family routes gives you the opportunityto follow the Speyside Way to Boat of Garten and return using the steam railway (timetable here) Bothy Bikes hire is open 9-5 every day (including Sundays)

We also run hire and a shop at Laggan Wolftrax, one of Scotland’s best trail centres.
Winter opening times:
Friday – Sunday 10 – 5
We can open other days by arrangement!

We also provide child seats (age 12 months and up) at no extra charge.

Genesis Caribou – fat tyres let you tackle terrain where less girthy bikes would flounder. Not a fast option on regular trails but excellent fun on rough tracks and soft ground and often the only way to go in the snow!

We have a selection of Scott E-Scale plus mountain bikes for you to hire. It’s a great way to explore the area – you’ll be amazed at how far you can go! Booking is essential as we have limited numbers available.

We recommend booking in advance, especially in holiday periods – the day before is usually enough, that way you can check out the weather forecast!
It helps if you can let us know the approx height of the riders, or age of children (12 or under) – that way we can allocate the appropriate size of bike for you.
