Comrie Croft mountain bike trails are set in a private estate in the Strathearn Valley in Perthshire, Scotland. There are 16km of trails in total plus a lot of natural trails in the Strathearn Valley. 

There is a Blue trail, around 4kms, a Network of Red Trails (a mix of handbuilt and machine built trails) and a Black Trail. There is also a Bike Skills area with jumps & drops and a pump track

The MTB network is always developing and there is also a bike hire, repairs, bunkhouse, eco-camping & The Tea Garden cafe on site. 

Comrie Croft was crowned iBikeRide Trail of the Year in 2016

Red 

  • The red trail is around 6kms long, all red graded but has sections that are technical and possibly a bit harder than other reds in Scotland. It is a good mix of being very natural, feature-packed with features such as the bedrock slab, off camber descents, the water splash and fun descents. There is a downhill black XC section from the top of the red which is very technical.

Blue 

  • Rick Allsop (Trail Builder) has developed a Blue Graded trail adding 4km of trail packed full of features and for all abilities.

Bike Park & Pump Track

  • The bike park has a multitude of progressive features graded as either blue, red or black.
  • There is a two-way Perimeter track with rock gardens, a little skinny, a north shore and rock drops  (all optional).
  • A Kids area with a mini pump track, a see-saw and a bridge.
  • A full-scale Pump Track.
  • A downhill run with rock drops and berms.
  • Choices of either blue (three smaller tabletops), red (two larger tabletops) run or 3 black (3-lights) graded tabletops runs.

Natural trails

  • There are loads in this area in the Strathearn Valley and the shop will help sort you with either easy, medium, difficult and expert grade routes. Many of these start from the Comrie Croft Centre e.g Comrie village (easy, 4 miles), Loch Turret circular (difficult, 10 miles), Breafordie circular (medium, 6 miles) or the Loch Tay expedition (expert, 20-30 miles).

Popped up here for a look on my day off. As a total beginner I found this route very challenging but rideable, technical with the rocks and routes everywhere that made it challenging but excellent for building the skills and I thoroughly enjoyed every part of the red route. Whole area seems well maintained and sign posts were everywhere making it very easy to navigate around the tracks. Routes were very natural flowing filling existing rock placements etc which just added to the enjoyment. To top it all off there’s a bike wash at the bottom for a quid so you can return all the mud to the grounds instead of carting it home with you. All in all a great day out. Stopped and spoke to the chaos in the bike shop too we’re we’re all super friendly and happy to help out. Will definitely return more than once as this is now one of my favourite routes.

Our local trail centre so go as oftenas we can and never fails to put a smile on our faces. Nice and challenging routes for the bikers and plenty of other stuff to do for those not on bikes.

Would be nice to have a skills area away from the main centre

I really enjoy riding at Comrie. It makes a good change from Glentress, golfie and inners. The trails are shorter but still really enjoyable. Good challenge to ride some sections in the wet on the rocks.

Good Points
Some great square edge bumpy trails with a some techy black chutes and the odd water splash, a nice view at the rock, great food at the bottom and a great bunch of helpful guys at the bike shop.
Bad Points
Trails could be a little longer but it's very easy to do loops and pick sections to re-ride

I took the kids here to have a go, and even though it was cold and wet at the time, the kids had great fun. The hire bikes were set up to suit the kids and it was a nice, relaxed atmospere.
