We are situated in the heart of Innerleithen with cafes restaurants, pubs, a supermarket, butchers, greengrocers, bakery and 2 bike shops all within a few minutes walk. (One cafe is next door on the opposite side of the road so is ideal for those early morning bacon baps.)

What to do

The passion for mountain biking here is off the scale, with so many trails that it’s impossible to summarise the number and quality except to say that they attract people from all around the world, from Pros to novices. Just 7km along the railway cycle path is the famous Mountain Bike Trail and Visitor Centre at Glentress Forest.  The path continues to Peebles and is popular with families cycling beside the River Tweed. Innerleithen also has its own DH, XC and Enduro tracks, just a few pedal stokes away.

We have a passion for –  and are immensely proud of the area, so can share ideas for your visit.  We can also advise on amazing road cycling routes to suit all abilities that are virtually traffic free and can make sure you pass some cafes enroute. There are local guides and MTB Schools to teach techniques and show you the trails to suit your ability, should you wish for extra advice. More detailed information can be found here.

The surrounding hills offer a wealth of walking and trail running routes to suit all abilities. 

And there are plenty of options for a day out, just some of which are highlighted in this video from Visit Scotland (and see our ‘Out & About’ and ‘What’s On’ pages.
