A challenging mountain bike ride through the heart of Scotland

Scotland is justifiably recognised as one of the finest mountain bike destinations in the world and this incredible 7 day journey takes us from the shores of the east coast through the heart of the Cairngorms and onto the island of Skye under the shadow of the Cuillin peaks in the west.

Over the duration of the week we will encounter every kind of riding, from mountain summits, remote passes and stunning coastal trails. Many of the routes are steeped in the history of Scotland, from the Old Drove and General Wades Military Roads. The range of ride is incredible and there is enough to test all abilities.

By the end of the week you'll just want to turn round and do it all over again!
