Guided cycling tours of the Scottish countryside

Come and join us on one of our adventurous cycling tours of the Scottish countryside. We have designed a series of trips to cater to different abilities that explore some of the best road biking Scotland has to offer. Choose from one of our standard three day tours or our week-long trip on the North Coast 500. With a maximum group size of 6 we plan to create a truly personal experience.

 

Let us take the hassle out of your next cycling tour so you can focus on the road ahead and enjoy the ride

Accommodation comprises luxury bell tents that sleep 2 people, either as a double or twin set up. These are kitted out in a comfortable glamping style. While we strive to create an adventurous experience, we recognise that you will probably want a shower at the end of a hard day in the saddle so we pitch our tents in official campgrounds that provide showers and toilets.

Our meals are served under the stars, or if it rains under our trusty gazebo. We will be burning plenty of calories on the bike so we make sure you never go hungry serving simple home-made fare using fresh ingredients as much as possible. High energy snacks and isotonic drinks are provided for sustenance on the road.

Our support van will transport your luggage between campsites so you can focus on the ride ahead and will set up a lunch station half way along the route. We also carry a full set of tools and spare inner tubes should any mechanical failures happen. The van will reach the camp before the bikes and have everything set up for our arrival.

We have graded our cycling tours from EASY to VERY DIFFICULT based upon the daily kilometres covered and meters climbed. Remember that over three or more days fatigue will kick in so make sure you are comfortable with the distances described before booking on.

EASY – 50km a day @ 12 km/hr with 500 m ascent – 5 to 6 hours on the road with breaks

MODERATE – 60 to 70km a day @ 15 km/hr with 700 m ascent – 5 to 6 hours on the road with breaks

DIFFICULT – 80 to 90km a day @ 15 km/hr with 1000 m ascent – 6 to 7 hours on the road with breaks

VERY DIFFICULT – 100km+ a day @ 18 km/hr with 1000m+ ascent – 6+ hours on the road with breaks

The North Coast 500

6th-12th September 2021

Level: Very Difficult

6 days – 620km – 4800m climbing – 40+hr on the road

The infamous North Coast 500 cycling tour takes a huge loop around the wild and remote Northern tip of Scotland. We deviate slightly from the route taken by campervans to avoid busy roads but we definitely don’t miss out on any of the spectacular scenery. Covering over 100km a day and climbing the equivalent height of Mont Blanc in one week is no mean feat so this tour is definitely designed for keen cyclists and those who are willing to put in the time to train for this once in a lifetime experience. And what better way to enjoy the wilderness of this part of the country than in our cosy bell tents under the stars.
