Cycling & Mountain Biking

Pedal your way to a memorable adventure in Scotland.

Bicycle Icon

One of the best ways to explore any country is on a cycling holiday, and Scotland is no exception. With a growing number of cyclist friendly paths and tracks Scotland has a range of trails to offer for all levels, both on and off-road.

The options include short routes through quiet forests and level paths alongside canals or converted railway lines – as well as gut-busting, mountain bike ascents (and hair-raising descents!) on demanding hillside trails. With downhill courses scattered across the country, there are heaps to choose from.

You don’t need your own bike – you can hire it when you arrive. Many of our members hire out mountain bikes and road bikes for children and adults and in some cases gravel bikes, fat bikes and touring setups. E-bikes are also becoming more popular and widely available.

You could hire for just a day or opt for a guided day trip, book a self-guided tour or embark on a fully-guided group holiday. You don’t need to carry your luggage on longer tours either – many of our members will sort that out for you too. All you need to do is pedal your way through some of Europe’s finest scenery!

See the providers below for more information on mountain biking and cycling holidays in Scotland. These companies have the inside track that will guarantee an unforgettable Scottish cycling experience.

All Wild Scotland members operate in line with our Best Practice Guidelines in regards to sustainability, accessibility, community and safety.
