Cycle the countryside of the Great Glen beside the Caledonian Canal, which includes Loch Ness, on a mixture of forest track, quiet roads & trails. Our local guide will lead you to locations offering wonderful views and share stories of the area.
The biking on this 7 day/ 6 night holiday offers a variety of enjoyable options. Each day our experienced guide will show you the finest trails and rides around and beyond the Great Glen. These will range from a mixture of trail, forest track, towpath and quiet, scenic roads, that we don’t have time to offer on our shorter 4 day ‘Bike the Great Glen’ cruise. Some of the areas we will venture into include the start of the longest no-through road in the UK; the famous Leanachan forest trails around Nevis Range, home to the Fort William UCI World Cup; the old Great Glen Cycle way which takes you high above Loch Ness offering some fantastic views and a real sense of a space to breathe.
While you explore, your accommodation, our comfortable barge with en-suite cabins, cruises ahead to a new location and on your return to the barge the resident chef will be preparing your meal.
While we wait to provide our usual safe and enjoyable holidays, our barge is now available as a wonderful and comfortable self-catering establishment for a family group. With our waterside location with views of Ben Nevis and being situated only a few steps away from one of Scotland’s well established walking route’s “The Great Glen Way” and the cycle route “The Caledonia Way”, it is a great base to enjoy the beauty of Fort William and its immediate area. Our 4/7 day holidays, when we start cruising once more are a wonderful healthy way to explore and enjoy the canal and the Great Glen.
