The Cairngorms Carousel is an off-road hiking or mountain biking route around Britain’s largest and most remote mountain range. The route  is described in sections that any fit and moderately capable mountain biker could complete in 4 days. The Cairngorms Carousel is not an official waymarked path and it runs through remote and rugged terrain. The route for each day starts and finishes in villages with good accommodation, food and amenities. Hikers cover the ground more slowly and will need to wild camp between villages. The best way to complete the route is on a good quality mountain bike, travelling light with overnight stops in hostels.
The circuit is split into 4 maps and guides. Map 1 covers the route from Blair Atholl in Highland Perthshire, through Glen Tromie to Kingussie and Strathspey.  Map 2 shows Strathspey and describes the route from Kingussie through Glenmore to Tomintoul. Those with some spare time could spend a complete day in Strathspey or Tomintoul to experience some of the best mountain biking in Scotland. Tomintoul lies on the north east edge of the Cairngorms National Park and is the furthest point from the start. Map 3 takes a route south from Tomintoul through Glen Avon and Glen Builg before climbing to the highest point on the circuit. This  is  followed by an awesome ride to Royal Deeside and the picturesque village of Braemar. Map 4 runs through the southeast corner of The Cairngorms before heading south through fantastic scenery, past The Falls of Tarf and through Glen Tilt to Blair Atholl.
