Can someone recommend me a decent mountain bike?!

Hi guys, I'm new to cycling so I'm looking for a decent mountain bike for a novice like myself to get started on. Won't be competitive mountain biking, just tackling canal paths on a irregular basis only if I feel like something different, most likely will just be cycling through big parks to one end and back to get my fitness levels back into shape.

I'm 6ft 1 so does that rule me out with most mountain bikes? And I'm 18 stones btw if that helps, though everyone tells me I don't look it!

There's two bikes I'm considering https://www.decathlon.co.uk/rockrider-520-mountain-bike-275-black-id_8350582.html or https://www.decathlon.co.uk/rockrider-580-mountain-bike-275-id_8336093.html

I know it all difficult to tell but seeing as I'm 6ft 1 should I get a L frame bike or XL?

Many thanks
