Superb scenery, quiet roads and great hospitality are the hallmarks of a road cycling trip with us.

Our road cycling holidays in Scotland feature spectacular landscapes and some of the most culturally interesting places you will find in Europe.

Our holidays range from an easy cruise through the Outer Hebrides islands to a challenging week of riding the highest mountain roads in the UK. Our on-the-road approach balances great guiding and insights when you would like it, alongside the freedom to explore at your pace.

Our trips are led by a qualified and experienced guide but you also receive detailed route notes for each day’s ride. You can choose to ride with your guide or simply follow the route notes meeting up with the group at designated stops along the way.

Throughout the day, our support vehicle will always be close to hand to provide drinks, snacks and a friendly ride should you need it. It also transfers your luggage between hotels, gearing you up for a lightweight and care-free ride.

Road Cycling - The Grand Tour
This was a unique experience. Much of the route travels extremely remote roads-- barely seeing a vehicle for hours at a time. This tour gave me an unforgettable experience of the beauty, majesty and magic of Eastern Scotland. I'll be back for more....

Road Cycling - Outer Hebrides
The trip was challenging for a novice cyclist but hugely enjoyable. The Outer Hebrides is a magical place and cycling is a perfect way to travel across the islands.
