5 DAY TOUR ISLE OF SKYE – INTO THE BLUE YONDER
On our first day, we ride through the wild and mystical Glen Coe through stunning scenery, past the awesome Five Sisters of Kintail. Then on to the magical island of Skye and two days spent exploring its fascinating coastline on outstanding roads.
Leaving the island we ride through a mountain pass taking us back in time on the road to Kylerhea Ferry – the only hand operated turntable left in the world – the original route on and off the island.
Now Wester Ross and through Glen Torridon with the oldest mountains in Britain arriving in Gairloch, my north-west home. The wild blue yonder and Scottish biking at its best.
6 DAY – ISLANDS AND HIGHLANDS ROAD TRIP
Just what is says! This amazing road trip takes us to the Isle of Arran, Mull of Kintyre, the Island of Gigha (meaning in Gaelic -God’s Island).
Yes, you will feel the effect of spirits here!
Now Loch Ness and the entire north east of Scotland. Across the north coast and down the west coast – Sutherland to Wester Ross. These highland roads must have been built for biking – fantastic.
6 DAY – AROUND THE SCOTISH MAINLAND
– NEW EXTENDED!
Leaving Linlithgow we ride north to Dornoch with an overnight stay in a castle hotel. Then John o’ Groats to Dunnet Head – mainland Britain’s most northerly point. Next day went along to Tongue and overnight in an old shooting lodge hotel. We pass Durness and Cape Wrath then down the west coast with its spectacular scenery and wonderful biking roads.
Overnight in my home town of Gairloch in a hotel beside the sea looking westwards to Skye. Now riding south we pass beautiful Loch Maree, through Glen Torridon and over the famous Pass of the Cattle – the highest road in Scotland.
Next the Isle of Skye for two nights. Time to chill out if wanted or ride the Isle of Skye. On the last day, we return through the awesome Glen Coe.
Quite an achievement – don’t just dream – do it!
7 DAY TOUR EXTREME NORTH – CAPE WRATH
We head north through the Grampian and Monadhliath Mountains staying overnight at Farr. Next day northwards by Loch Ness then across to the east coast and through the Strath of Kildonan – scene of Scotland’s gold rush.
We spend two nights at Tongue in a highland lodge with a full day of Cape Wrath – loads of wildlife and some of the highest sea cliffs on mainland Britain. Heading south we overnight at Gairloch then ride spectacular roads on the way to Skye to overnight in a lodge by the sea.
