The Highland Wildcat mountain bike trails were officially opened in November 2006. The community company has developed this facility with the agreement and support of Sutherland Estate under a longterm lease, encouraging public access over Ben Bhraggie and past the infamous monument to the 1st Duke of Sutherland.
The trails have been built to the highest quality to provide a serious attraction and justifying visitors travelling the 50 miles north of Inverness. In creating a Highland mountain bike destination, Highland Wildcat is complimented by trails at Kyle of Sutherland (Balblair and Carbisdale), Learnie Red Rock and Abriachan. These are all within easy travelling distance which have created a “cluster” of cycling opportunity in the North.
Sutherland's beautiful landscapes also provide ample opportunity to search out and explore it's natural trails.
