Trails: The Fire Tower Trail, Scotland

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.

The routes available are graded blue, red and black. See the trail grades page for full descriptions of these grades.

Riding distances depend on where you start from, but the main loop beginning at Achnabreac is 19km long.
