Welcome to the Highland Cycle Ability Centre, Scotland’s first dedicated cycling facility for people with physical and learning disabilities.
Located near Cantray, alongside the River Nairn, the centre offers young disabled people opportunities to experience all aspects of cycling, from off road riding in a safe, yet challenging environment, to training workshops on cycle maintenance.
The centre provides a variety of specialist cycle models to meet the different needs of its users, including tricycles for added stability and tandems for visually impaired cyclists.
Local cycling clubs, schools and community groups are also welcome to use our facilities, by appointment.

Paralympic cyclist Medalist Karen Darke has officially opened Scotland’s first dedicated cycling facility for people with physical and learning disabilities. Karen, who won a Silver Medal in the London 2012 Paralympic Games, performed a time trial on the £250,000 track. Cyclists from Highland Disability Sports, Moray Firth Cycling Club and Inverness Airport also took to the track.
“This is a tremendous facility that will make it much easier for disabled people to get involved in cycling and will raise the profile of para cycling ahead of the events at next year’s Commonwealth Games. Backed by sportscotland funding, this is a first for Scotland and testament to The Watermill Foundation’s vision and hard work.”
