Highland trail 550
The best time to attempt the route is late spring when the weather can often be relatively settled and the midge season may not have properly started. Riding the route cannot be recommended in winter or between August and October when the stag stalking season is at it's height. The route traverses private estates which rely on stag hunting for a large portion of their income, so please respect this regardless of your personal view of this activity.
The latest route GPX file is available for a discretionary donation to our charity partner the John Muir Trust
