CREAM O’ THE CROFT

15-17 June 2018, Comrie Croft, Perthshire

More Than A Bike Festival! 

Cream o’ the Croft can be as chilled-out or as flat-out as you want it to be.  A family-friendly festival of camping and fun activities for all ages, or a weekend of mountain bike racing and partying… or both!  We have an award-winning venue, live music, street performers, gourmet food and drink and a host of other fun stuff ranging from a pedal-powered cinema to a giant water slide!  Think of Cream o’ the Croft as a family-friendly music festival, mountain bike Enduro and a food and drink festival all crammed into one unbelievable weekend in Highland Perthshire!

GETTING THERE

BY ROAD
Comrie Croft is around an hour by road from Glasgow or Edinburgh. Go north past Stirling on the M9. At Dunblane the M9 changes into the A9 towards Perth. After about 3 miles take the junction left signposted for Crieff (A822). Comrie Croft Bikes and Hostel is set back from the A85 between Crieff (4.5 miles – from Crieff follow signs for the A85 towards Crianlarich) and Comrie (2 miles). We are clearly signposted from the main road (200m).

BUSES & COACHES
The Croft is served by up to 17 buses a day from Perth/Crieff/ Comrie on Stagecoach route 15. Ask the driver for Comrie Croft. These connect with a variety of train, coach and other bus services to the north, east and south. To the west the no. 15 service continues to Loch Lomond National Park at St Fillans 5 times a day (except Sunday).

A local service for Saturday evening pick-up/drop-off to Crieff/Comrie will be available.  Details will be advertised locally.

MUCKMAIDEN

Muckmaiden Ladies Days are held a couple of weeks before each Muckmedden event to give female riders the chance to enjoy a social ride on the trails that will be used in the upcoming race, or get some professional coaching in a female-specific environment. Hurray and sign up – places are limited!
