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!

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 - Bike Across Scotland
One of the best guided trips we have ever experienced.

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
My first excursion with Wilderness Scotland ... A HOME RUN.
Logistics were flawless, rental bikes were great, guides Graham and Lucy were a team that will be difficult to match.
The " mountain bike across Scotland" accurately rated as an 8 for difficulty. Hard and long but with the right support, the entire group made it. Few falls, sprains, bruises and near drownings (lol) but worth every hard day. The evenings were so much fun breaking bread with the guides and the locals at the B & B's.
If you decide to take on this challenge: be ready for average of 8 hours / day, be prepared to slow yourself down at times to make sure you get that photo that only comes along once in a lifetime, introduce yourself to everyone that looks your way, finish every night with a WEE DRAM for courage. Guaranteed you will walk away saying ... that was worth every $$ and bead of sweat put in! All the best and good luck ... Highland Stew out!
