7 days
Site savings
$2,234 USD

A classic wilderness journey through the remote and beautiful Scottish Highlands over 7 days. This route dives into the very heart of the Highlands on a series of ancient drove roads, loch-side routes, forest tracks and twisting singletrack. The route will take you 215 miles from Fort William on the west coast to Montrose on the east coast. This is a route that is varied throughout and, while achievable for fit intermediate riders, there are plenty of technical sections which will challenge more experienced riders and is perfect for those up for a mountain biking challenge. Note that e-bikes are available and that some of the departure dates are e-MTB only.

Start in style on day one with a climb up into the Nevis Range, rewarded with great views, which will paint the picture for the rugged Scottish landscapes to follow.  On reaching the Great Glen you'll follow the Caledonian Canal, have the opportunity for some monster spotting at Loch Ness and as the miles and days pile up, you'll cross the Monadhliath Mountains dropping into the Spey Valley and the Cairngorms.
From here on in the trip heads deep into the Glenmore Forest Park, passing through the remote Braes of Abernethy and you'll tackle some river crossings along the way. As you straddle the side of the majestic Cairngorm Mountains, you'll be rewarded with a night in Tomintoul; a 17th century village and the highest in the Highlands - one of your many chances for a wee dram.
Ending the off road trails with a superb woodland singletrack to Edzell and then, after a final night of celebrations, pedal the last few miles the next day to the coast at Montrose.
