The Scottish Highlands Cycle tour starts in Inverness and ends in Pitlochry. It is a bicycle trip that takes 8 days taking you through Inverness, Fort William and Pitlochry in Scotland. Scottish Highlands Cycle is a self-guided tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Experience the natural beauty and stunning lakes of the Scottish highlands at handlebar level. Cycle from Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands, along the shores of Loch Ness to Fort William. During this week long trip we cycle along scenic paths and quiet forest trails with opportunities enroute to spot the wildlife of the region including red deer, stag or golden eagle. A day in Fort William is set aside to rest or ascend Ben Nevis, Scotland's highest mountain. A train journey takes you across desolate Rannoch Moor to Loch Rannoch, where you continue on bike to the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry, nestled in the Perthshire hills.

“We have wanted to hike the Tour du Mont Blanc for some years and finally did it, booking through Sherpa Expeditions, starting at the end of August 2019. We were extremely fortunate with the weather, beautiful blue skies for most of the walk and stunning scenery and views of the mountains. We would highly recommend this to anyone who loves to
hike and be sure to be in shape before you start out!!”

“We thoroughly enjoyed our walk in the Dolomites. While the weather was not always sunny the views were still stunning. The accommodation was excellent and logistics of baggage transfers worked flawlessly.”
