Our shop and Mountain Bike Hire is at the Station Square in the village of Boat of Garten, next to the delightful Steam Railway Station, full of old-world charm, and the busy, friendly Boat Hotel. We stock a wide range of outdoor gear and clothing, biking accessories and lightweight backpacking gear, along with a selection of trail maps and guide books for biking and walking in the area. Our focus is on providing our customers with excellent service and product information, and to offer the highest quality products at the lowest prices we can afford to give, and that’s what we do.

With our central location, we are an ideal base for cycling, mountain biking and hill-walking in the Cairngorms National Park, with its extensive network of off-road trails and stunning mountain scenery. Close to the bustling ski resort of Aviemore with its all-year-round facilities, Boat of Garten (the osprey village) is the perfect place to unwind and to explore the less-visited areas of this beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands by bike or on foot, with its abundance of hill, forest, river, loch and moor.
