About Us

Cycle Scotland was established in the summer of 1995 to offer cycling tours and adventures in the most interesting parts of Scotland. Scotland has such a wealth of quiet roads and tracks that traverse some of the most spectacular scenery. Many of these routes are ancient pathways which allow us to discover the hidden Scotland, rich in history, folklore and sacred sites.

This is the real Scotland that many tour companies simply pass by.

Cycling is the ideal means by which to explore and enjoy this rich and varied landscape. Cycle Scotland aims to encourage an eco-friendly way of discovering our beautiful country with minimal impact on the natural environment.

When Peter opened his bike shop in 1995 the prime objective was to rent quality bikes in the centre of Edinburgh, to enable visitors to explore, escape and enjoy the city and sourrounding countryside.

Peter's prodigious knowledge of the backroads of Scotland's Highlands and Islands soon became apparent to the many cyclists who asked for his assistance in planning their bike tours. It didn't take long for Peter's reputation as an imaginative and inspired tour planner to spread widely. Now biking enthusiasts from all over the world come to us to plan routes and itineraties prior to commencing their Scottish cycling vacation.

Whether you have just a few hours, a few days or a few weeks available we can considerably enhance the quality of your stay in Scotland.

Trip advisor review

The three of us had a really great time. The routes we cycled were scenic, safe and spectacular. The bikes and equipment provided were excellent and the arrangements made by Cycle Scotland and the support provided by Peter & Jane made this a trip to remember for a lifetime.
