Holiday Information

Scotland is renowned for its glistening lochs and majestic glens, and the Lochs and Glens is a wonderful fully guided cycling holiday that enables you to experience it all by bike! We follow National Cycle Network routes and enjoy riding on traffic-free paths and quiet roads with some sections on cinder trails and well surfaced off-road trails.
Cycling from the pretty village of Balloch, also known as the gateway to Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, to Inverness, "capital" of the Highlands, the route winds its way through the beautiful rolling hills and forests of the Trossachs, passing tranquil lochs and secluded wooded glens. It’s easy to see why they call the Trossachs ‘The Highlands in Miniature’. Stunning scenery abounds as you enter the Highlands and Cairngorms National Park with magnificent views of the Grampian Mountains along the way. Picturesque Highland villages and ski resort towns lie ahead, with a terrific diversity of well-surfaced forest tracks, quiet scenic roads, and plenty of off-road cycle paths allowing you to comfortably take in the gradual changes in landscape.
You will cycle through historic battle sites, past ancient castles and bronze age burial sites, as well as Britain's first open air museum dedicated to Highland life through the centuries, all directly on our route. There are also many opportunities to see Scottish wildlife at its best including deer, red squirrels, eagles and osprey, so don’t forget your binoculars! If you get a tad thirsty you could always visit a local whisky distillery for a wee dram, with the route passing through some famous whisky-producing areas like Speyside.
Enjoy the very best of Scottish hospitality in the bed and breakfasts and small hotels that provide our overnight stops, as well as the legendary Skedaddle picnic lunches provided by our guides.
If you would prefer to do a self-guided trip then you could take a look at our Scotland - Lochs and Glens self-guided cycling holiday
