The Cabrach ascent commences just south of Huntly - one of the region's largest towns that boasts both impressive landmarks like Huntly Castle, as well as some delightful eateries. At Dean's, you'll of course find their unforgettable shortbread alongside hot meals and delicious home bakes.

The route, which has been attempted by over 2,600 cyclists as of April 2022, heads west on a road that is complete with dips and uphill battles that need conquering! Expect a lowest elevation of 182m, and a highest of 421m.
