About The Morangie Cycle Trail

A 12-mile route to a fabulous viewpoint with some challenging cycling beyond it.

Start from Aldie Burn car park and climb steadily on forest roads to a fabulous halfway viewpoint over the Peninsula and the Dornoch Firth. You can either whizz back the way you came or continue over rougher terrain with some demanding off-road sections.

Families may choose to turn around at the viewpoint.

Aldie Burn is 2 ½ miles (4 km) west of Tain in Easter Ross, not far from the A9. Halfway around the Tain bypass, you'll see brown signs to 'Aldie Burn forest walk'. Turn off the A9 here (signposted to Scotsburn) and follow the road for 1 ¾ mile (2.8 km) until you see the Aldie Burn forest walk sign. Turn right and follow the forest road to the car park at grid reference NH 754 792.

The peninsula is part of the Sustrans national Cycle Network Route 1 (NCR1) with lots of loops off this route allowing you to spend time exploring the area and what it has to offer,
