Tour company information

Twistie Thistle Motorcycle Tours

Our service is providing motorcycling tours in Scotland from 1 to 6 days. Our tours offer the flexibility on routes and timings to accommodate the requirements of customers. Our aim is to give the customer a great motorcycling experience they will remember. Tours will be either based on the interests and timeline of the customer or tours we suggest. Since Covid 19 occurred I envisage the market will be bikers from the rest of the UK, hopefully keen as mustard for a stay home trip in the UK. After future travel restrictions I will be looking at attracting custom from Europe and possibly USA.
