Start in Inverness and end in Pitlochry, the Scottish Highlands Cycle trip is a self-guided bicycle tour that takes 8 days. You will travel through Fort Augustus, Inverness and Pitlochry in Scotland. Scottish Highlands Cycle is a private trip which 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 Sherpa Expeditions tour
“Excellent hotels, some should be "called out" and personable like Lauberhorn Hotel in Grindelwald. Other were fine, quite nice
although staff not as charming or warm as the one in Meiningen or Grindelwald. Beautiful trip, really anticipated what was good to see. Good
detail as to what to expect. Swiss travel pass a good option.”
