Highlands of Scotland - Loch Ness

We are now offering tailor made guided cycle rides starting from Inverness, into the heart of the Scottish Highlands. Please get in touch if you would be interested in joining a cycle ride there. We will design a ride to suit your ability and interests, just let us know what you’d like to see and roughly how far you’d like to cycle. The Highlands has more than just hills on offer, visit the wonderful beaches, cycle to or round Loch Ness via a spectacular waterfall, or combine a short, scenic ride (with the chance to see seals and dolphins) with a visit to a whisky distillery. If you are interested in a two day trip we can organise a great cycle ride with one of 2 craft opportunities – learning to dye wool from locally found plants, or an introduction to green wood carving.
Price: £55
