Family cycling holidays are a perfect way to explore the countryside together while keeping active. Although many of our tours are suitable for families we have selected tours which use quiet roads with low traffic and cycle paths. The daily distances are not too long and the terrain is gentle with opportunities for interesting breaks along the way. Children’s cycles, tag-a-longs, trailers and child seats are available.
For Scotland we would be happy to advise on special itineraries for families with more cycling experience. Just let us know your requirements and we will design your tour.
Holidays can sometimes be short and you may not have time to cycle on a full seven day tour or you may just need to escape the city and enjoy the peace of a long weekend in the country. There are many ways to explore Scotland and cycling is one of the best. Enjoy this leisurely 4 night tour of castles and palaces on our ‘Miniature Castle Trail’ tour of Highland Perthshire.
