Mountain Biking Holidays

Book your activity holiday with Europe's No.1 Adventure Travel Company - Wilderness Scotland

Our mountain biking holidays in Scotland offer the chance to ride superb trails through some of the most unspoiled scenery in Europe.

Scotland has twice been named the best place in the world to mountain bike. Our range of mountain bike holidays gets you away from trail centres and into the amazing backcountry.

From mellow tours through the UK’s largest National Park to our iconic Coast to Coast trip, we have a trip for every level of rider. Along the way, you’ll stay in carefully selected guest houses and small hotels, so you can ride during the day and relax in the evenings.

Our expert guides hold the respected Mountain Bike Leader qualification. With years of experience, they also know the backcountry trails in Scotland better than anyone. Many of our trips are point to point rides – our support vehicle transfers your luggage and offers a lift if you legs are tiring!

Trip Reviews

Customer Kudos

Every client receives a feedback survey when they return from their guided, self guided or tailor made holiday with us.

Once completed the review is published on our website just as soon as our database updates. The little touches and details are important to us and where issues are raised we make positive changes to our trips to improve your experience.

That's why we read each of our client's reviews and although we don't respond to all of them, if it's glowing feedback then we get the satisfaction of helping to make your holidays truly memorable.

Mountain Biking - The Hebridean Trail
The Hebridean Trail was a great adventure - facilitated by quality guides. Yes, it was a lot of money compared to some holidays, however it provided an enormous amount of value for that money. I will be looking to book more adventures through these guys.

Mountain Biking - Coast to Coast
The trip is very much a 'journey'-you discover limits and redefine personal better be immersed within the heart of the highlands and to connect with the wilderness - the vistas,weather,otters,golden eagles,stags ..memory makers...the good company ,sharing stories and a common purpose all the right ingredients for new friendships to be made on the way ....fond memories that will stay with you .

Mountain Biking - The Hebridean Trail
I was expecting to push occasionally, but having to carry my bike up a mountain on the Reinigeadal loop came as a bit of a surprise. However it was worth it for the views and the ride down the other side.
Overall an excellent trip.
