Today I was lucky enough to go mountain biking in Torridon with three of my friends. We did a 30 mile loop which started in Annat, headed east to Coulin Estate and then climbed the pass there at 286m. The descent to Achnashellach was very fast and flowing through the forestry tracks to the road. A nice section on the road to Coulags before the ‘challenging’ climb up to the Bealach na Lice at 410m. The descent is a fantastic blend of track hem-stiched to the side of the mountain, swooping single track and sweeps of Torridonian Sandstone slabs all the way down to sea level.
