Guided Road Cycling adventures in the Outer Hebrides

Are you looking for the road cycling adventure of a lifetime? Would you like to experience the unique cultural, historical and wildlife landscape of the Scottish Outer Hebrides? Then sign up for a Wilderness Scotland guided road cycling trip that will take you from the remote Island of Barra, over nine stunning islands and finishing off in the gorgeous isle of Lewis.

Where can I find a road cycling tour in the Outer Hebrides?

Cycle from the remote island of Barra to the Isle of Lewis through nine incredible islands in the Scottish Outer Hebrides.

The first of the seven days will have you meet your guide in Inverness before departing by ferry to the Island of Skye, and then on from Uig to the southern shore of South Uist and the first overnight stay.

On the second day you’ll kick off the trip with a short cycle to the historic island of Eriskay, where the infamous Bonnie Prince Charlie landed in the 18th century, and the birthplace of the Jacobite revolution. Once you arrive here you’ll board the ferry to Barra and start the adventure proper! Barra is home to a lovely little airfield and lots of local history and culture that you’ll have ample time to experience.

The third day will continue on to the Islands of South Uist, Benbecula, and North Uist. Here you can cycle through the famous machair meadow habitats and view the incredible sea and land wildlife that lives along the fertile shores. You’ll end day three with a ferry trip to the Isle of Harris where your accommodation for the evening can be found.

You’ll cycle along the stunning golden road on the east coast of Harris with views across the sea to Skye on the fourth day. You can stop by the popular Luskentyre beach for a swim before heading back to the accommodation in Tarbert.

On the fifth day you can experience some of the Isle of Harris’ most famous exports at the Harris tweed weavers before cycling north through the dramatic mountainous landscape and boarding a ferry to Skye. After arriving in Lewis you’ll have the opportunity to visit the ancient Callanish standing stones and settle into the guest house for the next two days.

Day six follows an incredible historic road from Callanish out to the Butt of Lewis, an incredible natural point to end the trip by taking in the spectacular wildlife and landscape before heading back to Callanish and enjoying the final night in the hotel.

On the final day you’ll cycle across to the ferry port at Stornoway and enjoy lunch before ferrying back to the mainland and then Inverness.

  • All ferry transport and local boat services
  • You’ll meet your guide at Inverness Railway Station at 9:00am on Day 1 and be returned there after the trip
