Road Cycling - Outer Hebrides
The trip was more difficult than a 3 out of 10, but I got that sense from previous year's reviews and trained hard anyway. The rating should definitely be increased to reflect days with very steep climbs and lengthy mileage.

We want to do the trip again! We want to try to get all 8 slots filled with people of more similar ability (i.e. friends and family). One thing we would consider asking about is moving a little quicker during the day so we have some time late afternoon to explore the towns where we spend the night. Unfortunately most of the towns shut down around 5 and we seemed to roll in after 6 each day. The other thing is the GPS units, while nice, seemed to have a little difficulty.

Great experience. Will definitely consider another trip with wilderness Scotland. A little more bike fitting at the start would be welcome -- it took 2 days to adjust my stem and 4 to adjust my seat height. It was raining and the ground was not level at the starting point, which made it harder. Once I got used to the bike, I really like it and would be happy to ride the same one again.

Solo Travel: Making New Friends on the Island Explorer

Posted on Sep 08, 2017 by Russell Murray

Solo travel can be a bit daunting, especially if it’s something you’ve never done before but I think this wonderful quote from WB Yeats sums up the reasons you should give it a go: “There are no strangers here; only friends you haven’t met yet.” When I joined our Island Explorer road cycling trip at […]

Wilderness Scotland cycling holidays are a rich way to explore the scenery and landscape, culture and history of Scotland.

The majority of our bike tours are point to point, meaning that you can challenge yourself with getting from A to B by pedalling each mile as part of a friendly group.

All 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.

One of the most rewarding of our cycling holidays are the places we choose for dinners each night. We package everything so you don’t need to worry about the details, except of course what you order from the menu. We’ve selected independent hotels and fantastic eateries, so you’ll be well fuelled for the next day in the bike saddle.

Road Cycling tours are available in the following locations:
