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

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 it’s way through 7 beautiful islands and into some really wild places in Harris and Lewis.

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!

Mountain Biking tours are available in the following locations:

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
Excellent trip, stunning scenery, excellent guides. Some of the off road was a tad more than a 'blue 6' grade but it made a change to walk a bit ! We were lucky with the weather in that there was minimal rain during the day and for all, except the final day, the wind was behind us. Only down side, for me, was the lack of vegetarian food in the Uist and Tarbert hotels.

Outstanding Customer Service

Mountain Biking Holidays

*

As a 5 Star tour operator this is how we see customer service.

For example, we can’t say we will get back to you within 3 hours because sometimes we won’t and we can’t say we endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible, because that’s just wishy washy and everyone says that.

Great customer service isn’t tangible.

It’s tone of voice, and relationship building.

And going that wee bit further to make someone’s day and it can’t be quantified.

It’s how we make you feel…

and we feel that it’s the following things that go towards making the difference between a holiday, and an amazing, memorable experience.

Our Network
We have fantastic relationships and in many cases personal friendships with our trusted team of suppliers.
A Growing Team
Our team of 35 travel professionals in the office and over 60+ expert guides mean we're small enough to care about every detail but big enough to deal with any curveballs, meaning your holiday experience will be seamless.
We Know Scotland
Being outdoors people, we have an unrivalled depth and breadth of knowledge when it comes to Scotland's wild places. We've been there and can recommend locations and activities from our own experience.

Our holidays reviewed in your words

It was really a nice trip, and I was in great company. Choose easy trails, because they are more difficult than what you would think.

An epic mountain biking adventure across the breadth of Scotland with plenty of challenging hills, mountain tracks and single track. Arriving at Ardnamurchan lighthouse on the 6th day after a gruelling adventure truly felt like a special achievement for us all.
