Scotland’s Best Cycle Tour
What better way to experience Scotland – by taking one of our Self Guided Scotland Cycle Tours.
The River Spey rises in the hills above Newtonmore in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. It’s the fastest river in Scotland and as it dashes northwards to the sea it plays a vital role in salmon fishing and Whisky production. This route follows much of the course of the Spey through a wide range of landscapes with many historical, natural and cultural experiences along the way.
The cycle route isn’t as easy as a gentle riverside path though, this is the Scottish Highlands after all, but the days are quite short and your luggage can be transported between accommodations. Start and finish in the capital of the Highlands, Inverness.
Inverness is a really great small city with fantastic pubs, cafes, and restaurants, many situated along the banks of the river. Inverness also has some great live music venues and the excellent Eden Court Theatre.
