Exhilarating Highland Wildcat Trails

The Highland Wildcat Trails operation runs from northern Scotland. They have adopted the emblem of the Sutherland clan, as it encompasses their motto and all they stand for. The design that is on the emblem is said to have been inspired by a ferocious tribe, known as The Catti, who were able to share their existence with dangerous mountain cats that rid their surroundings of rodents. In Gaelic their motto was Gun Eagal, which translates to "Without Fear", and it is with this motto in mind that Highland Wildcat has designed their mountain biking trails, ensuring that everyone who participates enjoys an unforgettable adventure.

Hike the Historic Cateran Trail

For centuries, up until approximately the seventeenth century, the hills and landscapes of the Cateran Trail were dominated by the Caterans. They were feared cattle thieves and descended on their victims in the dark of night in large numbers, ranging from between fifty men and up to a massive invasion of five hundred strong. They would not only steal cattle, but would invade any celebrations to steal guests' jewellery or anything of value. Travelling far distances to retrieve a good bounty was also not a problem for the Caterans, and they eventually carved out roads and routes through the landscape, which is now known as the Cateran Trail.
