The Fire Tower Trail, by Lochgilphead in West Argyll, has a little bit of something for everyone, from gentle tracks to radical free-riding.
The descents are awesome - but what comes down must first go up, so there are some challenging climbs as well. Fortunately the climbs give you an excuse to sit down and take in the stunning views before enjoying 7.4km of singletrack.
Riding distances depend on where you start from, but the main loop beginning at Achnabreac is 19km long.
Lochgilphead lies on the A83 Tarbet - Campbeltown road and at the south end of the A816 to Oban. Achnabreac car park Turn east off the A816 approximately 3km north of Lochgilphead, directly opposite the turning to Cairnbaan. Follow the forest road for 900m to the car park. Kilmichael Glassary Approximately 6km north of Lochgilphead, turn east off the A816 through the village of Bridgend. Follow the signs to car parking in Kilmichael Glassary.
Please note: Distance is calculated as air distance or "as the crow flies" the most direct route between two points, so the distance by road maybe slightly longer.
