Scottish Island Hopscotch

8 Days Easy-Moderate

Rich peaty whiskies, rugged coasts, prolific wildlife and romantic island hideaways. Discover the Scotland of your dreams on an island hopping cycling holiday on the Islands of Arran, Islay and Jura.

Embarking on the ferry to Arran marks the beginning of your Scottish Island adventure. Well known for it’s stunning scenery Arran is often referred to as Scotland in miniature because it packs such a punch. Arran has it all: jagged mountain peaks, rolling hills, quiet coves , soaring sea eagles, local crafts, breweries and ruined castles.

From Arran you catch the ferry to Kintyre and then after a short pedal across the peninsula to the Isle of Islay. Your base for the next five days. Small whitewashed villages , peaty whiskies, vast empty beaches and rugged coastal scenery make the Isle of Islay a very special place. Home to eight world renowned distilleries Islay is a whisky lovers paradise and as you can imagine the pubs aren’t half bad either.

Port Askaig, your arrival point on Islay, is the jumping off point for Jura. A remote and wild island where red deer outnumber people by 25 to 1. Spend a day meeting the people and drinking in the unique atmosphere before heading south to Port Charlotte.

Port Charlotte is the gateway to the wild Atlantic Coast of Islay. Huge cliffs pierced by golden sandy beaches are the perfect habitat for millions of breeding birds and birdwatchers will be in their element.
The pretty Port Ellen is your final stop on Islay and the hopping off point for a magical day of cycling and whisky on the island’s beautiful south coast.
