Ideally we wanted to hire electric bikes but didn't place a booking. The following morning we went along to hire the bikes, only to discover we could only have 1 electric bike, the other had already been hired. I must admit I was rather negative, but we decided to take 1 pedal and 1 electric bike. Helmets given, repair kit.... More

There is not much to say only that this store delivers everything you'd expect and maybe even more. They deliver high quality bikes, the service has the same high quality. They even give you maps and recommending very scenic bike routes.

This is a proper bike shop with everything you'd expect - knowledgable staff, a good selection of bikes and parts, and a maintenance pit that you can see from the main shop area. When I arrived it had an original Schwinn cruiser outside and loads of Surly fat bikes, among lots and lots of others. You can hire e-bikes here... More

Hiring bikes is a great way to see the spectacular scenery around Aviemore. There are several bike hire options around Aviemore and based on our experience I would strongly recommend Bothy as they were very helpful. We had originally only booked bikes for the children as there were two adult bikes at our accommodation, however the short ride to pick... More

The bikes were really good quality mountain bikes, and pretty reasonable hire cost. Our youngest lad said "I think I'm in bike heaven!" All the staff were really friendly. They made sure we were all really comfy on our steeds. Helmets were great too. When we almost turned up late to return the bikes, they were really nice about it... More

We hired 2 bikes here, which we were able to phone and reserve the day before. Despite us being late arriving (the shop is a 20 min walk from Aviemore centre), this didn't cause any problems, and everything was handled very smoothly. The bikes were ready for us - both adult Genesis MTBs. The assistant gave good advice on types... More

We hired two adult bikes, a tag-a-long for our 5 year old, and a wee-hoo for our 3 year old. The guys at the shop were helpful, helmets were provided for everyone, we got a puncture repair kit included just in case, and were given a map and a suggested route to follow. All in all the half day hire... More
