Day 2 : Elgin/Forres to Castle Fraser (Sun 27 Aug)

It’s 90 miles from Elgin and 75 from Forres, heading south via Dallas, Aberlour, Dufftown, Rhynie and Keig.  The hills go a little higher on day two with a first RTN appearance of Califer Hill outside Forres as well as old RTN favourites The Cabrach and The Suie. The finish at castle Fraser will be reached by riding the Lord’s Throat along the River Don before finish right outside one of Scotland’s finest castles.

Health Warning – The route presented here will represent a provisional plan. Ahead of the event we will be working with Local Authorities, local communities and Police Scotland to confirm plans. It is anticipated that the route will be subject to change, but the overall objective will be a level of challenge (distance and hills) which are consistent with what is presented.
