Skye (700 miles, approx)

This is a three day tour to Skye enjoying some of Scotland's most popular scenic glens and lochs.

General Information: The tour begins at our head office in Melrose and moves north, taking time to stop and enjoy several points of interest from the Borderlands to the island of Skye. The theme of all our tours on Scotland's country roads is for a relaxed and unhurried trip, enjoying local scenery and popular historic sites.  We try to run at a pace to suit all within the group but appreciate that some may wish to go faster than others and will endeavour to accommodate such riders on appropriate sections of the tour.

It should be noted that it is Tom's policy to avoid riding on motorways so please do not expect any! However, there are occasions when we have to be at a particular location at a specific time and therefore the planned route may be altered accordingly.

Our Skye trip can be incorporated into any of our Highland routes.

Prices: For individual or joint tours are available on enquiry; accommodation options and costs can also be made available on request, if required.

Dinning out: We are always happy to advise on where to dine and when at all possible we like to dine with the hole group.  

Bike hire: For information on bike/equipment hire and our vehicle support  service please refer to our webpage Bike and equipment hire etc.

Day 1, Twelve Lochs To Dornie: (245 Miles Approx)

On the first day we travel through the Borders, leaving our head office at Melrose around 9.00am, over the Firth of Forth and then head west to pick up on the old drove roads to Skye, arriving at our chosen accommodation around 7.00pm.

It's a full day that takes in several  major stops, including Killiecrankie Visitor Centre, Laggan Dam and the Commando Monument,  with many additional stops if time permits, or if the weather is less than friendly.  Our day finishes at Dornie with a group photo at Eilean Donan Castle.

Day 2, The Hunt for Charlie: (180 Miles Approx)

After a good Scottish breakfast we leave our accommodation and make our way to our first ferry crossing. The road to the ferry is like the ferry its self - small and requires good attention, giving an entertaining ride. On landing in Skye our first port of call is Broadford, where you have the option to run with us to see and ride our set route, or explore the Island's many small roads, by yourself or with others you have befriended. Our set route around the island allows you to rejoin the main group at any time, however we ask that you return to our accommodation around 7.00pm, eating as a group and talking about our day's experience.

Day 3, By Way O' Sleat: (260 Miles Approx)

We now follow Charlie's rise to glory and the route he took south to Derby ... but finishing our day back at our head office in Melrose. Its a full day and we certainly don't take the most direct route south as we take our second ferry of the trip at Armadale, landing at Mallaig, then on to Glenfinnan via some hidden sites and enjoying several memorable roads.
