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.

Road Cycling - Island Explorer
This wasn't an every year type of holiday, and I saved for the pleasure of this cycle holiday. I was not disappointed, although I had never gone a a trip like this before, and the Island Hopper tour was challenging for me. I was happy to have achieved it, making it out on my bicycle each day (even in the rain), and conquering hills! The guides were excellent, and made the trip much more enjoyable with their knowledge of cycling, the area, history, etc. and their attention to detail.
