Comrie Croft Trails are an expanding mix of existing forest roads and hand built, dedicated singletrack which combine to give you an exhilarating ride.
They start and finish at Comrie Croft, a four star Independent Hostel, situated in the heart of rural Perthshire in the beautiful Strathearn Valley.
From the car park you are quickly climbing on forest trails, which although steep at first, become a little kinder on the calves and as you rise out of the valley, you are greeted by some spectacular scenery. Following a brief downhill respite, the singletrack begins and winds its way up through some technical forest sections with some interesting features, check out the chunky bedrock slab with off camber descent, and the water splash. A little more climbing takes you to the descent, which is a thrilling mix of tight twisty singletrack and natural bedrock. On the way down you'll also encounter a little fun park in a disused quarry and a great variety of surfaces and riding styles.
Not a course to be ridden at top speed, the emphasis is more on the technical and challenging aspects of riding and after an hour you'll be back in the car park with a big grin on your face and a healthy notion to go and do it all again!
All the trails are graded red with some black sections, and at present measure around 6kms. We are in the process of adding in some escape routes to give you an option round some of the more technical parts of the trail.
Comrie Croft is around an hour by road from Glasgow or Edinburgh. Go north past Stirling on the M9. At Dunblane the M9 changes into the A9 towards Perth. After about 3 miles take the junction left signposted for Crieff (A822). Comrie Croft Bikes and Hostel is set back from the A85 between Crieff (4.5 miles - from Crieff follow signs for the A85 towards Crianlarich) and Comrie (2 miles). We are clearly signposted from the main road (200m).
