We stock and use a wide range of great bikepacking gear, such as industry leaders Revelate Designs, Ortlieb and Salsa Cycles. Check them out in the shop and start your adventure. We also offer bikepacking gear for hire: get in touch to find out more.


We are the UK’s Alpacka Raft Dealer. Packrafts are rugged, hand-built wilderness boats: they're light and small enough to pack on your bike, but tough enough to survive any adventure you throw at them. Shop for Alpacka Rafts with us today.

 Mountainbike Hire/Servicing

 We hire out our fleet of hardtails and adventure-oriented mountain bikes, as well as fat bikes. We also offer bicycle servicing and hire of our workshop facility for you to fix you own bike, not forgeting our comprehensive range of Mechanic's courses

We are BackCountry.Scot


This is the place to shop for gear, sign up for courses and plan adventures.  We're experts in specialist adventure gear, and stock Revelate Designs bikepacking gear, Ortlieb gear and Alpacka Raft packrafts. We provide mountain bike hire from our shop in Aviemore, as well as operating a bicycle repair workshop and sale of day-to-day bike essentials. We love sourcing and testing the best gear, so you can cut to the chase and concentrate on being epic.


Expand your adventures

From our base in the Cairngorms National Park, we offer skills training and bespoke adventures — our mission is to enable more people to have safe, mind-expanding adventures by bike and by boat in the backcountry, and we're driven by sharing our love and respect for the wilder corners of the land. Proudly, we are the first company in the UK to offer packrafting specific adventures alongside Bikerafting and Bikepacking.
