Scottish Highlands Cycle
Cycle from Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands, along the shores of Loch Ness to Fort William. During this week long trip you'll cycle along scenic paths and quiet forest trails with opportunities enroute to spot the wildlife such as red deer, stag or golden eagle. A day in Fort William is set aside to rest or ascend Ben Nevis, Scotland's highest mountain. A train journey takes you across desolate Rannoch Moor to Loch Rannoch, where the cycle continues to the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry, nestled in the Perthshire hills. The final stage is the attractive cycle route to the riverside city of Perth, with opportunities to visit the historic cathedral of Dunkeld en route.
