Ben Aigan Mountain Bike Trails
Ben Aigan, or as you sometimes see it - Ben Aigen, was home to many of Moray's Monster Trails, a network of 30km plus MTB routes based around Fochabers. Alas, this is no longer the case. Not only are the purpose built trails on Ben Aigan no longer maintained, many of the trail features have been dug up and removed.
It is not all bad news though. The Ben still offers a 10 mile route which is worth doing on its own, or combining with a ride on some of the existing Moray Monster Trails.

Other Mountain Bike Trails to Try
Tarland Trails is a small mountain bike centre, in the village of Tarland. The trails are short, about 3km in total, but suit a wide range of users from family to experienced and competent riders. There is a family trail, a technical run, a big jump run and a pump track.
Bennachie Turnpike Trail
The Bennachie Turnpike Trail is a tough, circular mountain bike route, using for its first few miles part of the old Aberdeen to Inverness turnpike road. This is definitely one for the more experienced mountain biker.
Iconic Clachnaben offers a classic circular mountain bike trail which makes you feel as if you are truly remote. Grinding ascents, a technical and exposed rocky descent, fast flowing forest sections and gentle firebreak sections. Something for everyone.
The Lecht Ski Centre
During the summer the Lecht offers two mountain bike tracks; a difficult red trail and a moderate blue. And, there is no need to cycle to the top of each trail, simply hook your bike onto the chairlift and enjoy the ride.
