The Longest Mountain Bike Descents in Scotland | Ep 05

In this episode of Scotty’s Scotland Showcase we’re in Lochaber! Lochaber is like a mini-Alp’s and is home to the biggest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis. We’ll be riding at Glencoe Mountain Resort, climbing Binnein Mòr and exploring the trails at Fort William’s, Nevis Range. I’m back on my SCOTT Gambler and first off, we take on the rough Glencoe Red and Black. After, I jump on my Ransom and climb Binnein Mòr in search of big vistas but upon summiting, we get weathered out and have to make our way off the mountain. We finish by heading to explore Fort William’s Nevis Range where I reminisce of racing in front of the home crowd at the 2009 and 2010 Downhill World Cup. Nevis Range has slowly been expanding its trail network so we checked out their Black, Top Chief and the all-new blue, Blue Doon! This week’s episode is all about reconnecting with nature and it couldn’t be easier to do than by bike. Lochaber is an amazing destination to get in to big landscapes, be it for an adventurous day out or lift accessed thanks to the offering in Glencoe and Fort William.
