Following the clearly marked Aberdeen to Inverness cycle route, this fascinating tour follows varied roads and cyclepaths through Old Aberdeen to Dyce. The route then uses a mixture of traffic-free railway paths and country roads as it heads through rolling farmland.

It continues north through fertile farmland and small villages to rejoin the beautiful north coast at the fishing village of Banff. From here hop from one seaside bay to another along this picturesque coastline-fishing villages, sandy beaches, rocky cliffs and prolific wildlife on land and sea.

Visit castles, distilleries, museums, ruined Elgin Cathedral and Culloden Battlefield before reaching the end of your journey at the Highland capital city of Inverness.
