    Mountain Biking Holidays

    Our mountain bike 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 tours get you away from trail centres and into the amazing backcountry. From mellow MTB tours as we bike across Scotland, to our more challenging and iconic Coast to Coast Scotland trip, we have a tour for every level of rider.

    Travel Planning and Advice

    Single Track Mind

    Mountain biking holidays offer unique opportunities to really explore deep into areas that are rarely visited, on incredible trails that are rarely ridden.

    Our mountain bike tours in Scotland are some of the most iconic in Europe. Our Coast to Coast tour follows a unique route that we have spent 18 years refining so that you have the best possible experience. The Hebridean Trail winds its way through 7 beautiful islands and into some really wild places in Harris and Lewis.

    Let us Take Care of The Details

    Along the way, you’ll stay in carefully selected guesthouses 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 your legs are tiring!

    Our holidays reviewed in your own words...

    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.

    The Bottom Line

    The Bottom Line

    This is an amazing trip which reaches places that are not easy to get to by other means. The terrain we crossed, and the trails we used were varied, but always interesting. A great mixture of all the different off-road cycling experiences which the Scottish Highlands have to offer.
