Gain a new perspective on the iconic Isle of Skye from the saddle - A heady combination of sea and mountain scenery around every corner - By night enjoy well-earned dinners and sample the local ale - Why not enjoy visits to Dunvegan Castle or Talisker Distillery - Stay in bike friendly, family-run Highland accommodations

The Isle of Skye, Scotland's largest island, off the northwest coast is a playground of mountains and lochs delivering breathtaking vistas around every twist and turn of the narrow roads. A cycling holiday on the Isle of Skye is the perfect way to discover the welcoming people and amazing scenery of Skye at your own pace. Arriving by ferry in the village of Armadale on the remote Sleat peninsula, feel the excitement and anticipation build as you look forward to your journey on the 'Misty Isle'. Pedal north through the lush landscape of the 'Garden of Skye' to the town of Broadford, enjoying views of the jagged Black Cuillin. Amazingly, the scenery continues to improve as the light, mountains and sea combine in an ever changing panorama as you cycle north to Dunvegan and then Uig. The iconic rock formations of the Quirang, Storr and the colourful harbour town of Portree are all on the itinerary as you head south on your journey back to Armadale. Skye is home to some of the most dramatic sea and mountain landscapes in the British Isles; quiet country roads, prolific bird and wildlife including sea and golden eagles, a strong Gaelic culture and a warm and welcoming people. Hand-picked B&Bs, guesthouses and small country hotels, and daily baggage transfer combine for a wonderful cycling holiday in Scotland.
