Mountain Bike Uplift Locations in Scotland.

Welcome to Uplift Scotland – an easy-reading guide of where to go for a day’s uplift assisted mountain bike riding in Scotland.

Although Scotland is surprisingly short on mountain bike uplift centres, we’ve very much gone for the quality over quantity approach.  Uplift Scotland is your resource for the who, what and where of uplift assisted Scottish mountain biking centres.

Spread out across all corners of our vast, beautiful country are a mixture of van+trailer, gondola and chairlift mountain biking venues as good (if not better) than anything else in the world.

What is Uplift anyway?

Ever wished that there was an easy way of getting back up to the top of that hill you spent 40 mins climbing, only to spend 5 minutes bombing back down it again?

Good news – with an uplift ticket you simply chuck your bike onto the back of a trailer or hook it onto the chairlift of gondola and get yourself comfy until you reach the top again.  Think of it as a ski-lift for bikes.

Good eh!?
