The "Scottish Highlands Cycle" trip starts in Inverness and ends in Pitlochry. It is a bicycle tour that takes 8 days taking you through Inverness, Drumnadrochit and Fort William in Scotland. "Scottish Highlands Cycle" is a self-guided private trip 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.

Review for another Walkers' Britain tour
“The Walk Norway Fjordland Self Guided Walk was excellent. UTracks gave us all the advice necessary to arrive fully prepared to enjoy the experience There were alternatives given for each day to allow for different degrees of difficulty. The accommodation was great-especially the Finse 1222 Hotel where the staff were particularly helpful and welcoming. The walks took us to places we would never normally have access to. We loved every minute.”
