Holiday Information

Scotland is renowned for its glistening lochs and majestic glens, and the Lochs and Glens is a wonderful self-guided family cycling holiday in the UK 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 Perth on the banks of the river Tay, 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 make your way north alongside the magnificent Grampian mountains, before heading south to finish your journey in the ‘Fair City’ of Perth, so called since the publication of the story of Fair Maid of Perth by Scottish writer Sir Walter Scott in 1828.
Your cycling adventure passes through historic sites of battles and ancient castles and there are also many opportunities to see Scottish wildlife including deer, eagles and osprey, so don’t forget your binoculars! For the adults, if you get a tad thirsty you could always visit a local whisky distillery for a wee dram!
Enjoy the best of Scottish hospitality in the bed and breakfasts and small hotels that provide our overnight stops. This self-guided trip includes transfers, luggage transfers and emergency back-up. We also provide detailed route notes and maps to enable you to do the route under your own steam. Nothing could be simpler!

Is this holiday suitable for your family?

This trip is ideal for active families with older children who cycle regularly and who are looking for a cycling holiday that has an easy to follow route in spectacular surroundings. The trip is place to place, so your children should be able to cycle the distances stated on the dossier. The terrain is mainly on traffic free paths and quiet country roads. It is hilly in places with some cheeky climbs that may have you walking. There are also some small off road and the occasional section that takes you alongside the main road so your children must be comfortable and safe cycling in this environment.
