Caledonia Way | Cycle Route NCN78

Trip Summary

The Caledonia Way Cycle Route (National Cycle Network, Sustrans Route 78) crosses Scotland from Inverness in the east to Fort William on the west coast and then south through Oban to the finish in Campbeltown in the Mull of Kintyre. We offer bike hire and cyclist transport services along the route from Inverness as far as Oban so that's the bit we'll describe here. At the moment we are unable to offer one-way bike hire or transport services beyond Oban.

Bike Hire

Bike hire is our specialism and we are confident that we have the best hire bike fleet around. We only use top brand equipment and replace bikes every year to ensure up to date specification and the highest standards of reliability and safety. Standard equipment includes:

  • Helmet
  • Pump
  • Lock
  • Spares
  • Tools
  • Water bottle

Choosing the right bike depends on the terrain, your luggage and what type of bike you are used to riding. Hybrid Bikes are the most popular and offer a relaxed riding position. If you are used to drop handlebars and are travelling light then the Road Bikes may be more attractive.

"We want you to enjoy cycling in Scotland as much as we do."
