Trail Community

Unlike the other 7stanes trails, the whole of the Big Country route is on minor public and forest roads, without any singletrack. With magnificent views of lochs and hills contrasting with sheltered woodlands, and some testing climbs and big descents in the course of its 58km, it’s a challenging but rewarding day out.
