This cycling holiday from Ardrossan to Inverness includes Hebridean islands, the Kintyre Peninsula and scenic riding alongside sea lochs

We visit Fort William, the Great Glen and Caledonian Canal cycling all the way to Inverness. You will enjoy traditional Scottish hospitality whilst taking in outstanding natural beauty, historic castles, ancient Celtic history and marvel at the wonders of Scottish engineering working in harmony with nature.

We begin with a Hebridean Island hop, enjoying the outstanding natural surroundings that have provided inspiration to the whisky islands for their varied flavours and character.  The Ardrossan ferry takes us to beautiful Arran. We cycle the Isle and catch another boat to the Kintyre peninsula, then cycle on as far as Tarbert. Curving around the west side of Kintyre with idyllic views of Jura we cut back to follow Loch Gilp and then cycle alongside the Crinan Canal. Heading inland we cycle past ancient ruins at Kilmartin Glen before riding the Road of Kings through beautiful Glen Lonan.  From Oban we set sail again to Mull circuiting the west side of the island cycling through a scenery of clear blue loch waters and deep green fields. We take a water taxi across the Sound of Mull to reach the Morvern peninsula.

A rest day at Ardtornish Estate gives us the opportunity to enjoy wildlife, adventure activities from kayaking to diving, or more cycling in the local area. Back on the bikes, we follow Loch Linne cycling to reach Fort William. From here we join the Caledonia Way riding the Great Glen, passing majestic Ben Nevis.  We ride on minor roads, canal towpath and forested paths to Fort Augustus.  Following the east side of the great Loch Ness we take a lesser known route on quiet back roads to reach our final destination, Highland capital city Inverness where redspokes HIghlands and Islands cycling holiday ends.
