The first day is spent making our way North towards the Scottish Border. Our hotel has a wonderful setting, inviting rooms and excellent motorcycle facilities for our first nights stay.
Arrangements can be made for a meeting point on route and travel together if this suits people. At the hotel, there is the opportunity to get to know one another whilst relaxing over a drink in our lovely surroundings, before we have our evening meal.
After breakfast we head North and travel through beautiful Lanarkshire and beyond Glasgow, past Loch Lomond. We cross Rannoch Moor and through Glencoe, renowned for it’s stunningly beautiful scenery, before heading south along the shores of Loch Linnhe. Our destination is Oban where have a lovely hotel for the evening. This will not be the last we see of Oban, as we will head back through here during our ride back up the coast on day five.
From our hotel we head South today, eventually following the coast rode and riding along the shores of Loch Fyne. Knapdale forest is off to the West and we have beautiful scenery all around us. We cross on to Kintyre before following the Western coast road, with the wide open expanse of the Atlantic off to our right. We continue South before looping at Cambletown and heading back North via the Eastern coast, with the Isle of Arran off to our right. We continue on to our hotel, for the first of two nights in this region.
Today we stay in Argyll and Bute and use different routes in order to explore the region in greater detail. We travel via both the Western and Eastern coast of Loch Fyne, before also running South along the shore of Loch Awe. Beautiful scenery is all around us today and as we spend two nights at the same location, there is an opportunity to travel light during day four and leave your luggage at the hotel.
After breakfast we leave the hotel and head North towards Oban, before turning and crossing the pass of Brander. We travel via the beautiful Trossachs national park and past Loch Tay in to Perth and Kinross and our wonderful hotel for the evening.
Today we journey South towards Perth and then Fife, before crossing the new Forth road bridge and circling the City ring road at Edinburgh. Our hotel for the final night of the tour is set in a quite countryside location in Cumbria and we head there through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Scottish borders.
During this final night of the tour we can reflect on our experiences over a relaxing drink, before enjoying an evening meal. The magnificent scenery throughout, the wonderful biking roads and the hotels for our overnight stays, will all make this tour of Scotland special for you.
