Scotland - Mountain Bike (MTB) "Hebridean Trail & The Wild West"

 

Mountain Biking (MTB) - Harris, Skye & Knoydart. 

A Challenging Mountain Bike route through the wild west of the Knoydart peninsula and on Scotland's two great Mountain Biking islands in the inner and outer Hebrides (Skye & Harris).

A must for the committed wilderness Mountain Bike rider!

TOUR SUMMARY

Combine the Isle of Skye with Harris in the Outer Hebrides and Knoydart on the West Coast of mainland Scotland and you have an epic week of Mountain Biking in one of the last wilderness areas in Europe.
 
Over the seven days mountain biking holiday in Knoydart (the wild west), the Outer Hebrides, and Skye you will experience some of the best and most remote wilderness single track rides in the UK.
 
Our exciting Itinerary starts with the best two wilderness rides on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides before returning to ride the single tracks through the Cullin Mountains on Skye. Finally we visit Knoydart and the challenging mountains of one of the last true unspoilt wilderness areas in Europe.
 
We ride the glens and mountain passes on ancient trails used by the Highlanders and Crofter through the centuries and ride over Scotland's most remote mountain pass and down one of the longest descents in Scotland to the sea.
 
A route designed by John Fulton, Director of Wildcat Adventures and pioneer of Mountain Biking in Scotland!
 
Our tour has been fully researched and personally ridden by John & Brigitte - as with all our tours, it is run & supported by Wildcat Adventures and led by John & Brigitte.
