Scotland: Self-Guided Holidays and Small Group Cycling Adventures
Cycle Scotland's backroads and country paths to explore the many Lochs, small villages and Bens of the Scottish Highlands. From quiet forest trails to trails affording stunning mountain backdrops, a cycle tour of the Highlands requires good fitness to ensure you make the most out of your Scotland cycling holiday.
Scotland occupies the northern third of the island of Great Britain. It is bounded by England in the south and on the other three sides by water: by the Atlantic Ocean on the west and north and by the North Sea on the east. Scotland is divided into three regions— the Highlands; the Central Lowlands, containing two-thirds of the population; and the Southern Uplands. The western Highland coast is sliced throughout by long, narrow sea lochs, or fjords.
Our amazing cycling holidays in Scotland focus primarily on the enchanting Scottish Highlands which stretch from the north to the west of the country and take in some of the most rugged and dramatic scenery of the British Isles. It is a landscape that lends itself to cycle touring.
