In this podcast, our Head of Developing Mountain Biking in Scotland - Graeme McLean, chats with Scotty. The podcast tells tales of Scotty's experiences of riding across our fabulous land and into his favourite destinations. If you are inspired to ride then please check out our Ride Guide for both inspiration and practical tips and links to book your next amazing mountain bike holiday.

Don't forget if you book your holiday through our affiliate link with Expedia then 5% will be put back into maintaining and enhancing the trails you will be riding through our networks of trails associations.


We want Scotland to be recognised as the very best place to holiday and ride across the UK and Europe, and to showcase the breadth, depth, quality, and inclusiveness of mountain biking in Scotland.

We were delighted to work with Scotty to create a series of films to support our content covering 8 key destinations across Scotland - The Ride Guides.

We want these guides to highlight the awesome experiences to be had and the incredible riding opportunities across our main destinations.

Have a look at the guides and please use them to inspire your next trip.
