The 215 mile cycle route from Glasgow to Inverness passes the end of our drive and we regularly enjoy the company of cyclists doing Lands End to John O'Groats or one of the Coast to Coast Routes. So, if your routing takes you past our door, why not stay with us for a well-earned night or two's rest?
If you're still at the planning stage, take a look at the "Cycle End to End" website, link below, which has been specially set up as a useful resource to help you.
If you are staying with us for a few days, rather than cycling through, there are cycles routes too numerous to mention in the local area – around Loch Insh, on Rothiemurchus & Alvie Estates and, closer to home, in and around the Glen Truim, Etteridge & Phones Estates.
There’s also the excellent Mountain Biking Centre – Wolf Trax at Laggan. This fabulous operation has just over 6 kms of really challenging Black routes, more than double that of testing trails for intermediates and almost 5 kms of fun for beginners. They offer base facilities too and all this is just a short drive away!!
Food & Drink.
After your day in the saddle, it may suit you to dine in, savouring Irene's excellent cooking skills. 5 days a week, from Wednesday to Sunday, except in July & August, she conjures up a splendid, 2-course dinner for our guests.
Additionally, on any evening we're not cooking dinners, for our guests who are cycling unsupported to & from Crubenbeg House - on the Coast to Coast Route or from John O' Groats to Lands End, for example, we are happy to offer an equally delicious light supper, really convenient for you because the pub in Newtonmore is some 4 miles away!! Please ask us about this when you make your booking.
We're also happy to put together a packed lunch for you - we'll chat to you about this when you're here.
With more practical considerations in mind, we have ample secure storage for bikes and can arrange for bike hire through The Cycle Shed in Newtonmore, Mikes Bikes or Bothy Bikes in Aviemore and Basecamp MTB in Grantown. Servicing & repairs are also available at all 3 of them.
There are a number of excellent local companies who offer cycling packages etc - take a look to see what they do and just how much you can enjoy yourself!
