      Back in the Saddle

      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.

      This has quickly risen to the top of my short list of trips I must do again (along with the Outer Hebrides!). Beautiful scenery, great undulating rides, wonderful accommodations. Highly recommend!

      The Bottom Line

      The trip was physically and at times emotionally challenging (the boat crossing on a slightly wild-weather day) but well worth the journey. I loved (almost) every minute of it!

      The Bottom Line

      The Bottom Line

      We are very proud of our achievements on the 5 Countries cycle. I would say however, that the trip grading should have been looked at more carefully (by me that is), as some of the ascents and descents are, in my opinion, more than a '6'. In future, I wouldn't consider a grading over 5, unless I'm doing more cycling. 30 miles per day would probably be my maximum, rather than some 50-60 mile days.
