Tour of Scotland

31/05/2015 - Inverness to Dunoon - Holiday

Rating: 98.9% based on 5 reviews - Rate this Event Now

  

For 2015, instead of starting and ending in the same place we plan to start in the Highland capital of Inverness and make our way down to Dunoon via the the wild lanscapes of the north, the dramatic west coast mountains and the traffic free lanes of Argyle and the Cowal peninsular. The proposed route can be viewed by clicking HERE ( remember this site overstates the height gains). Overnight stops will be Ullapool, Torridon, Kyle of Lochalsh, Oban and Torran bay on Loch Awe. The mighty Beallach na Ba pass from Applecross will be included, but there is an optional short cut.
We would start riding on Sunday and end the tour in Dunoon late afternoon on the Friday, leaving Saturday free for your journey home. The provissional dates for the tour are May 31st to June 5th.

Inverness has excellent transport links from Glasgow and Edinburgh, it even has an overnight sleeper train service from London. Arrangements could be made to transport bikes to Inverness from Dumfries or Glasgow and transport from Dunoon to Glasgow will be arranged.

I would hope to keep the base cost for this tour below £350, depending on final numbers perhaps nearer to £300. In addition a minimum fudraising for Tearfund of £500 will be required. Meals, hostel accomodation, luggage transport and on ride support will be provided by the support team.

Numbers will be limited so contact us now to register your interest.
