Scotland - Highlands and Islands
Highlands and Islands
Our Ardrossan to Inverness cycling holiday includes Hebredian islands, the Kintyre Peninsula and scenic riding alongside sea lochs. We visit Fort William, the Great Glen and Caledonian Canal cycling all the way to Inverness. You will enjoy traditional Scottish hospitality whilst taking in outstanding natural beauty, historic castles, ancient Celtic history and marvel at the wonders of Scottish engineering working in harmony with nature.
We begin with a Hebridean Island hop, enjoying outstanding natural surroundings that have provided inspiration to the whisky islands for their varied flavours and character. The Ardross ferry takes us to the beautiful Aran, we cycle the Isle and catch another boat to the Kintyre peninsula as cycle as far as Tarbert. Curving around the west side of Kintyre with idyllic views of Jura cut back to follow Loch Gilp and then follow the Crinan Canal, heading inland passing ancient ruins at Kilmartin Glen before riding the Road of Kings through beautiful Glen Lonan. From Oban we set sail again to Mull circuiting the west side of the island through a scenery of clear blue loch waters and deep green fields, then boat again across the Sound of Mull to reach the Morvern peninsula.
A rest day in the Ardtornish Estate gives us time to enjoy wildlife, adventure activities from kayaking to diving, or more cycling in the local area. Back on the bikes, we follow Loch Linne to reach Fort William. From here we join the Caledonia Way cycling the Great Glen, passing majestic Ben Nevis. We ride on minor roads, canal towpath and forested paths to Fort Augustus. To the east side of the great Loch Ness we take lesser known route on quiet back roads to reach our final destination, highland capital city Inverness.
