DAY 1 – ARRIVAL DAY

Arrive Inverness and check into your accommodation. We will meet you and go over all the tour documentation and introduce you to a taster of the fantastic riding to come. Our guide will take you to help get fitted for your bike and to make sure everything is fine-tune your machine for the coming days. On your arrival it is advised to rest up, eat well, relax and dream of the days to come.

If not done so already, then you will have a chance to upload all of your GPX files for the coming days. Of course, we will be there to help if you haven’t managed to do this. You are in good hands! Ask your guide for their recommendation of preferred Inverness ‘watering holes’ and local restaurants.

Overnight at Inverness

DAY 2 – Inverness to Drumnadrochit

Distance: 18.39 miles Ascent: 1563ft

We set off on our adventure departing Inverness heading upwards to a local well known MTB feature called The Mast. The scenery on this first leg is stunning and nice way to break your legs in for whats to come. There is plenty of time to stop along the way to admire the scenery and still make lunch stop in Drumnadrochit. The afternoon can be spent exploring the local area where Urquhart Castle remains.

Overnight in Drumnadrochit.

DAY 3 – Drumnadrochit to Fort Augustus

Distance: 20.90 miles Ascent: 3711ft

Today is real leg burner with some stunning climbs and descents from Drumnadrochit towards Invermoriston and again into Fort Augustus. You will come across two decision points where you can either take the undulating low road or go for the high route, which is half a mile shorter. Don’t let that sway your decision as either way you won’t be disappointed; however, the scenery up top is out of this world. Again we will make lunch stop in Fort Augustus where we will spend the afternoon exploring, where we can find the remnants of Fort Augustus castle.

Enjoy evening to yourself for a wee nip or two.

Overnight in Fort Augustus

DAY 4 – Fort Augustus to Foyers

Distance: 14.96miles Ascent: 1965ft

On day three, we change over from the great Glen way to the Southern Loch Ness Trail which takes us up and over Glendoe with a stunning 360 viewpoint at Suidhe. We then drop down towards Foyers where there are two excellent tea rooms, Highland cattle, super friendly deer and the stunning Falls of Foyers. Made famous during the Victorian era, rest up for the last leg of this fantastic trip.

Overnight in Foyers

DAY 5 – Foyers to Inverness

Distance: 23.82 miles Ascent: 2474ft

Our penultimate day takes us home to Inverness. En route we will visit yet another stunning viewpoint of Loch Ness, this time from Faired Haired Lads Pass. After which it is a beautiful drop down to Dores where a well-deserved beverage is called for and perhaps a visit to the beach for a swim (time permitting) before mounting up for the final 10 miles into Inverness, and some well deserved rest and reflection on your stunning trip. Drop off bikes and enjoy your final evening.

Overnight Inverness.
