Day 1

Today sees us climb Carnferg, the local hill which provides breathtaking panoramic views of Deeside, Cairngorms and beyond.

The rolling green hills and lush greenery that we began our ride with quickly give way to rough but beautiful heathery slopes as we climb higher and higher to reach the summit of Carnferg (525m). Here we reach the memorial cairn at the summit which is over 100 years old and take in the panoramic view that surrounds us.

Red kites and eagles soar overhead and on a clear day, you can see Morven, Mount Keen, Mount Battock and beyond into the heart of the Cairngorms.

Day 2

Today's ride will give riders the opportunity to explore the long distance route called 'The Fungle' in both directions. Each day we will pick up the trail and follow it in a different direction - exploring varied scenery each day.

Day 3

On our last day, we will explore the Forest of Birse. We climb a smaller hill called Lamahip and follow a narrow steep trail through the heather to admire the slopes of Carnferg from a different angle. We descend to the Waters of Feugh where we will visit a beautiful stone church from the 1800's, stepping inside feels like going back in time.

Here we have lunch in the trees next to the church, enjoying the chattering waters of the Feugh. After lunch, we follow the river through the glen before we climb again for more beautiful views over towards Finzean.

In autumn, the afternoon on this day is the best time to hear stags roar.

Departure at the end of the day by independent transfer.
