Publish date:

The new Glenlivet Estate, Cairngorms-based mountain bike trails and centre is seeking businesses to bid for the attraction.

Opening autumn this year, there is an opportunity to run the new visitor hub and cafe has been created at a major new mountain biking attraction in Moray, Scotland.

The Crown Estate is seeking a business partner to manage the mountain biking facility at the cross country bike trails, which is expected to attract thousands of outdoor sports enthusiasts to the Glenlivet Estate.

“We are seeking a trail centre operator with the interest and vision to work with The Crown Estate to build a successful business enterprise at the forest hub," explained Andrew Wells, head of countryside management at The Crown Estate. "This is an exciting opportunity for either an existing business wishing to expand or for a new start-up business looking for a base.”

The £500,000 mountain bike project (with £250,000 of investment from The Crown Estate) includes the development of two new mountain bike trails in the Carn Daimh Forest, near Tomintoul. The new trails will be cross-country bike trails enhanced by the wilderness and stunning views of the area. They will
be constructed predominately within the commercial forest area and will consist of two routes (10km and 19km) using a combination of existing forest tracks and a newly built single track.

Work began on the trails last summer.

The development is expected to have considerable potential to stimulate new business activity and support tourism businesses in the local area.
