Lochaber has held a special place in many mountain bikers' hearts for over 30 years and is one of the most iconic race venues in the world. This week, we are spotlighting the area. We will be sharing articles, stories, and inspiration pieces from the area, and will be helped by a very special ambassador! We will announce who that is at 5 pm. Stay tuned!

Fort William and Lochaber form part of Scotland's dramatic and varied West Coast. The area carries a wealth of trails - From the UK's longest Blue Route, through to off-piste, technical trails made famous by Joe Barnes, the World Cup DH track and two lift accessed riding areas.

Beyond the town of Fort William, with its rail links that are served from all over the UK, lie some unspoiled adventure gold - with multi-day bike packing routes, incredible coastal route adventures, and a range of superb cafés, bars and restaurants, and many choices of accommodation.

It's been dubbed The Outdoor Capital of the UK for good reason.

Adventure awaits!

The diverse and inspiring landscape of Lochaber makes it a perfect place to get away from the busy tourist hotspots and create your own unique memories.

The Caledonian way sections along loch Linnhe and the Caledonian canal give a lovely gentle cycle with great views and places to stop. For visitors looking for a wilder experience, how about cycling past deer roaming the hills on your way to a remote bothy with a packed lunch? Or a ride to a stunning loch or river for a picnic and a wild swim? Or explore the rugged coast line looking for secluded sandy beaches, and maybe spot an otter, seal, white tailed eagle? Or jump on a ferry to the small isles and explore Rum, Eigg, Muck, or Canna by bike, supporting local businesses along the way.
