Road Cycling Holidays

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

Quiet roads and great hospitality; the hallmarks of a Wilderness Scotland road cycling holiday.

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 own 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 cycle Scotland 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.


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.

Road Cycling - The Grand Tour
It was one of my best trips EVER. First, it was a dream come true - a cycling vacation in Scotland, second - it was perfectly organized and carried through. My bike was great, the scenery was amazing, the company was good and the accommodations were comfortable. We visited many interesting places, had good food and drinks, made friends. There is nothing else I could wish for.
