Head out of the city limits and into the wonderous spectacle of the Scottish Highlands, on a bike tour that passes magnificent castles, lochs, mountains, rivers and glens.
Meet in the town of Pitlochry in the Scottish Highlands, which is situated a scenic hour and fifty-minute train journey from Edinburgh, to get far off the beaten track and out into the pristine, wild landscape and to the southern edge of Cairngorms National Park.
From there, you’ll set off on a four or five-hour cycle through 40 km of stunning Scottish scenery. You’ll pass incredible castles like Blair Atholl and the historic village of Killiecrankie, and keep your eyes peeled for the native wildlife, such as red squirrel or red deer.
Follow a delightful burn (stream) over a highland glen, and soak up the quintessentially Scottish landscape, with mountains glowering in the distance and forest creeping up their sides.
Your local guides will find paths that get you away from any crowds, and as you cycle in total isolation, you’ll stop for a quick break at a little highland cafe, serving up an array of soups, cakes, scones and tea. Cycle along the shores of Loch Tummel until you arrive back at Pitlochry, where you’ll take the train back to Edinburgh.
