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
Overall the trip was awesome. Mostly for the scenery and extent of what we were able to see. However, I would not call this a mountain bike tour, as there was very little mountain biking. Most of our time was on the road, which was fine, but if was there specifically to mountain bike I probably wouldn't be very happy.

TEAM WILDERNESS RESPONSE:
Thanks for your comments on the trip. Given the nature of the Hebrides, we do have to use the road for some sections of the trip, so that we can link up the route and make this a complete journey.

Mountain Biking - Coast to Coast
Making it unaided to the top of the climb at the end of day 4...apart from the final arrival at Ardnamurchan which of course can't be beat!
