Great Glen Cycleway

This fantastic self-guided bike tour follows a Scottish coast to coast route, primarily along the famous Great Glen Way National Trail. With detailed route notes, personal service and more, all you do is pedal & enjoy.

Cycle and take in many highlights of Scotland, including views of Ben Nevis (the highest peak in the UK), the mysterious Loch Ness, historic Fort William and the capital of the Scottish Highlands: Inverness. Follow canal towpaths and forest tracks and enjoy mainly easygoing cycling, however there are some sections on gravel fire roads and hills that can be challenging.
