Our tours are mainly self-led and designed for the cyclist who wishes to explore the beauty of Scotland's scenery, visit some of its many tourist attractions(both historical and modern) and enjoy the warm welcome of its people. Distances vary between 15-40 miles(24-64km) per day and where possible there is a choice of daily routes, some more challenging than others. You can proceed at your own pace comfortable in the knowledge that there is plenty of time to pause, have lunch by the burn, climb a hill or visit a historic castle.To assist you with your choice we have graded each tour. Distances are approximate and the grading is only a guide. We cannot accept responsibility for difficulties which may arise.
Supported Tours are ideal for persons who wish to make new friends and travel with the maximum support. Please do not think that because you may wish to travel on your own or with a companion that you should not join a group tour. Each individual (or couple/party) is provided with maps and route notes and can travel independently. The advantage, however, is the support of a well informed guide to supply information about places of interest and ensure that your bike is ready to go. The luggage is moved ahead each day and the support vehicle sweeps the road to offer a lift if you wish a break from cycling. Most persons choose to join in the evening meal to exchange stories of the day and over the week friendships are created which outlast the holiday. The guide's function is to ensure that each person enjoys the tour and he will offer as much or as little support as you wish.
We are happy to advise on any route you may be considering and give suggestions. It is wise to remember that away from central Scotland the roads and railways wind their way following the terrain and journey times can be longer than they would appear on a map. This is particularly true when ferry travel to the Outer Hebridean Islands is involved. One week is usually not enough time to enjoy the magic of these special islands. There are some roads we strongly advise are unsuitable for cyclists because of the heavy commercial and tourist traffic. Our tours can be modified in any way to accommodate individual preferences. However, if you do not find a tour which visits the destination of your choice let us know and we will design an individual itinerary. All grades of accommodation are available from hostels to first class hotels. It is our pleasure to assist you to enjoy the special combination of Scotland's beautiful scenery and the warmth of its people.
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 weekend in the country. Our short breaks in beautiful Scotland are just what you need and are very competitively priced. They can be taken at any time of year and any days of the week.We offer accommodation, bikes and routes at three popular towns, Pitlochry, St Andrews and Inverness and we can organise similar breaks in other mainland parts of Scotland on request. There are forest trails, mountain paths and quiet minor roads within easy reach and the routes are suitable for all grades of cyclist including families.
