For cycling enthusiasts, you can’t beat the rugged terrain of the Cairngorms for sheer excitement, challenge, and views, but there are plenty less demanding routes for the whole family to enjoy. With its dense forests, untamed moorland, and steep rocky inclines, the Cairngorms offer a tantalising mountain biking experience for dedicated riders. For those seeking a more relaxed journey, the roads around Strathspey Lodge are ideal for a leisurely ride: The Inverness – Perth national cycle route (number 7) passes through Carrbridge, also traversing the Slochd Summit, just five miles west of the village.
