Scotland - Highlands and Islands
Highlands and Islands
The redspokes Campbelltown to Inverness cycle tour follows the east coast of the Mull of Kintyre alongside sea lochs to Fort William and up the Great Glen and Caledonian Canal all the way to Inverness. Enjoy traditional Scottish hospitality whilst taking in outstanding natural beauty, historic castles, ancient Celtic history and the wonders of Scottish engineering working in harmony with nature.
We begin with a Hebridean Island hop, experiencing outstanding natural surroundings that have provided inspiration to the whisky islands for their varied flavours and character. The Ardrossan ferry takes us past beautiful Aran on our way to the Kintyre peninsula and on to Islay. Cycling across Jura, we catch a boat back to the mainland, follow the Crinan Canal and pass ancient ruins at Kilmartin Glen before riding the Road of the Kings through beautiful Glen Lonan. From Oban we set sail again to Mull circuiting the west side of the island through a scenery of clear blue loch waters and deep green fields, then boat again across the Sound of Mull to reach the Morvern Peninsula. A rest day at the Ardtornish Estate gives us time to enjoy wildlife, adventure activities from kayaking to diving, or more cycling in the local area. On the bikes again, we follow Loch Linne to reach Fort William. From here we join the Caledonia Way cycling the Great Glen, passing majestic Ben Nevis.
We ride on minor roads, canal towpath and forested paths to Fort Augustus. To 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.
