We believe the best way to explore the Highlands and Islands is by bike, from short day rides exploring the islands of Kerrera or Lismore to multi-week adventures.

One of the most popular options we offer is the one-way trip, starting in Oban, Campbletown, Fort William or Inverness and finishing in Stornaway, Inverness, or Fort William; lets you create your unique cycle tour.

Kerrera day ride

Possibly the perfect day ride

Isle of Kerrera is a brilliant ride for beginner and experienced rider alike and is best done on a mountain bike. The ride starts with a ferry crossing and a challenging climb but once at the top the views to the Isle of Mull more than make up for it.
 
A swift descent and another smaller climb leads to some brief rocky singletrack which can be walked if your not too sure. Then it's on to the island cafe where lovely soups, sandwiches and cakes can be had. Don't stay too long as you have a ferry to catch back to the mainland, 20 mins away.
Approx 3-6 hrs

Week long trips


It is possible to follow the Sustrans route 780 from the beautiful island of Barra the length of the Hebrides to Stornaway. You will travel north through a string of islands with bright white beaches and towering granite peaks.
At night you can choose to book one of the many B&B's on the island, wild camp on the beach or hunt down the amazing hostels that have been converted from old croft buildings. Once in Ullapool you can drop off your bikes and we will have them transported back to us and you can continue onto Inverness and then Edinburgh or even London.

Hebrides and Skye tour

Scottish Islands greatest hits
If you want to do a circular route or have more time to explore you can sail to Barra and follow the route 780 until you reach Tarbet where you can then jump on a ferry to Uig on the Isle of Skye. From here you pedal across the Jurassic landscapeof Skye to Malaig where you then cross onto Ardnamurchan. Here you really will feel like you are in the remotest peninsula in Scotland and by riding to the furthest point ,at Kilchoan, you can catch another ferry onto Isle of Mull, where its an easy half day ride to the homeward and last ferry of your trip back to Oban
