Firmly established as the best UK off road place to place trip and it’s easy to see why! This classic mountain bike holiday in the UK follows drove roads, forest tracks, singletrack and minor roads over mountain ranges and alongside spectacular lochs.
This is a tremendous yet strenuous route, perfect for those up for a mountain biking challenge. The route takes us 235 miles from Loch Hourn on the west coast near Skye to Montrose on the east coast.
On our first major climb, we are rewarded with great views looking back over the dramatic Cullins on Skye, which paints the picture for the rugged landscapes to come. We reach the Great Glen, follow the Caledonian canal and have the opportunity for some monster spotting at Loch Ness.
As the miles and days pile up we straddle the side of the majestic Cairngorm Mountains, then we are rewarded with a night in Tomintoul; a 17th century village and the highest in Scotland - one of our many chances for a ‘wee dram’!
The trip delves deep into the Glenmore Forest Park, passing through the remote Braes of Abernethy and tackles some great river crossings along the way. After a superb singletrack that takes us to Edzell, we finish the trip with a night of celebrations, before the final easy few miles the next day and arrival on the east coast at Montrose.
Arrival point for the trip is Glasgow International Airport from where we offer a free collection service to your initial accommodation. Post ride you’ll be whisked back to Glasgow to your cars or to catch your train or flight home.
If you've already done this classic ride, and were bitten by the bug - why not have a look at our new Highlands North to South trip, from Bettyhill on the North coast to Stirling Castle in the heart of Scotland - different trails, different places and different experiences - just as epic!
