This gorgeous cycling holiday travels from the shores of Loch Lomond, a mere stone's throw from Glasgow, through the dramatic lochs and glens of the Trossachs National Park, to Pitlochry in the Highlands and all the way to Edinburgh.

The Trossach hills provide a fabulous backdrop to your route, which leads you through stunning wooded glens and beside quiet lochs to the highland town of Pitlochry. Ride along the water's edge of many a loch, where little breaks the silence. Pedal along the dramatic Glen Ogle Viaduct using a former railway line with views to die for. Forests alternate with sheep clad slopes, castles and distilleries with isolated hamlets and classic Scottish towns. Feasts for real foodies await - this area of Scotland isn't just known for its beauty, landscape, and wildlife, but also its fabulous cuisine.

Your cycling adventure ends in Pitlochry; from here you ride the train to Edinburgh and explore this vibrant capital with an overnight stay in the heart of the city.
