To get there travel up the Abriachan road for a mile, until you reach the village hall; at the next junction, take the left fork signposted Abriachan Forest Walks. Passing Loch Laide on your left, the forest is the next left turn, with the Forest Trust car park 300 metres further along.

The Abriachan / Kelpies mountain bike trails are set high up in the highlands of Scotland above from the shores of Loch Ness.

This is a family friendly mountain bike trail centre with three trails:

  • A green 3km route
  • A 7km blue route
  • A 4km red run
  • A jump park

Green Trail

  • The green trail is family friendly as an introduction to the sport and connects onto the blue with a footpath feel. 

Blue Trail

  • The blue trail is a family friendly 7km ride.

Red Trail

  • The red trail has steeper slopes, on narrow single-track which as  a loop also onto connects onto the jump park 

Jump Park

  • The jump park has eight table tops, bermed corners and gap jumps.


  • Together the Abriachan trails are known as the Kelpies' Trails - after the famous and mythical local water horse. 
  • The Abriachan Trail centre is owned by the Abriachan Forest Trust community who in 1998 purchased the 534 hectares of forest.  They are a Trust owned by the 140 local inhabitants scattered around the rural community. As a social enterprise they have created a network of paths, MTB trails and educational opportunities.
