Scotland – The Highlands!

LET US CELEBRATE THE SMALL CORNERS OF THE WORLD  with a loop around the Scottish Highlands. And why is Scotland such a favourite destination for motorcyclists? Is it their love of whisky, kilts and ceilidhs? The monster at the bottom of the loch, or the prickly plant they use as the national symbol?
We are anxious to ride you o’er hill and dale to answer these questions while also showing off their love of dancing, the bright blue and white flag, the bagpipes, kilts and tug o’ war.

Haggis for all!

Optional Early Arrival Day

No riding.
Accommodation in hotel.

Welcome to Scotland – the northernmost country of the United Kingdom with its three distinct regions: the Highlands and islands, the more heavily populated central belt including the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, and the Southern Uplands bordering England.

We will arrange for your pickup from the airport and transfer to our hotel on whichever day you arrive. Consider arriving a day early to allow for a more relaxed start to your riding vacation.  Our first informal meeting will take place whenever all the riders arrive to make introductions to your fellow riders, Rob House the Tour Leader and go over any paperwork requirements.


No riding.
Accommodation in hotel.

Today we will head into Edinburgh and immerse ourselves in the history and culture of this magnificent city. We will be dropped off in historic Old Town at the foot of Edinburgh castle to better absorb the cobbled streets, handcrafts, restaurants and local inns. A local map will be provided for those who wish to explore in a smaller group or in pairs.

We will meet again for lunch in Old Town and then immediately afterwards depart for a tour of Edinburgh Castle whose battlements tower over the square. This tour can easily absorb three hours of your time so we will have to be mindful of our transport back to our hotel in the late afternoon to meet up with our bikes and fill in the necessary insurances and related paperwork


Fort William
Accommodation in Fort William

Leaving the city behind we will quickly become absorbed in the Scottish scenery as we climb steadily into the Highlands and head towards the West Coast. We will ride through awe inspiring views of the Glencoe National Nature Reserve, where, according to Highland code, a clansman should give shelter to anyone, even to his sworn enemy.


Isle of Skye
Accommodation on Skye

‘Over the sea to Skye’, A Jacobite lament indicates our journey plan for today as we wind our way further along the Scottish coastline. We will pass stoic monuments to the fallen from WW2 and onto our first single track routes of the journey and cross the sea onto the Isle of Skye. Weather permitting there are private estate grounds to walk through in the afternoon and of course local whisky begging to be tasted.


Accommodation in Ullapool

Weather will always have a bearing on the days riding in Scotland and, weather permitting, we will loop over a seldom travelled mountain pass and along more remote west coast single track routes with the wild Atlantic to our left. Our destination is the small fishing town of Ullapool and the gateway to the Northern Highlands. This is a perfect stopover location to stretch your legs alongside the small local community and explore this picturesque town nestled alongside Lochbroom.


Accommodation near Thurso

Topping out at the North Western tip of Scotland today we will wind our way through wild and windswept Durness, a landscape filled with ruins from a different age. Heather and peat bogs will become the predominant features along this beautiful and rugged coastline where trees struggle for purchase. Our accommodation is a country house, hidden in twenty acres of its own woodland.


No Riding. Free day.
Accommodation near Thurso

A day of rest or a morning for further exploration – the choice is your today. The grounds offer walks alongside a flowing river and waterfall where you can sit and absorb the highland air, read a book or simply relax. If relaxing in a hot tub isn’t for you, there will also be a late morning outride to Dunnet Head and John O’Groats the most Northern and Eastern points of Great Britain respectively.


Loch Ness
Accommodation by Lock Ness

It’s all about sighting the ‘wee beastie’ today as we begin wind south south and into softer lowland scenery. We will sweep down to Loch Ness and explore its history and associated folklore. Our accommodation is situated alongside Loch Ness with a side cruise down to Urquhart Castle on todays agenda. Keep your cameras handy for a selfie with Nessie!


Accommodation in Pitlochery

Skirting the remainder of the Loch in the morning we will visit the Caledonian Canal constructed in the early nineteenth century, connecting the East and West Coasts of Scotland. We will travel through more extraordinary scenery as we visit the Cairngorms Mountains, skirt the peaks of Ben Macdui and pass through Balmoral with its strong connection to the British Royal family on our route back through the mountains.


Accommodation in Edinburgh

A visit to the Scottish Crannog Centre on the banks of Loch Tay will help interpret Scotland earliest heritage dating back over 2500 years, showcasing skills and technologies carefully maintained and handed down through the ages. Our journey back to Edinburgh will also take us through The Trossachs National Park and past The Wallace Monument. We will check in the bikes and head out for our farewell dinner overlooking the Firth of Forth.

DAY 10

Fly Out

Breakfast at your leisure and a check out at 10 am. You will be transferred to the airport for your flights home. Should you wish to spend a few more days here, we will be more than happy to help you extend your stay.
