Ben Alder Circuit

Distance: 71.5km

Ascent: 1312m

Time: 5.0 - 7.0 hours

Difficulty: Moderate/Difficult


The circuit round Ben Alder taking advantage of the excellent stalkers paths on the Ben Alder Estate is a justified classic in a stunning setting.  The traditional route goes anti-clockwise and has a long hike-a-bike climb over the Bealach Breabag and less than perfect descent through the Bealach Beithe. 

This route goes clockwise and avoids Bealach Breabag by starting with a ride along the shore of Loch Ericht with only a short section of hike-a-bike round An Dun (the headland before Ben Alder Cottage).
