Hebridean Way Transport

Cycling the Hebridean Way makes for an unforgettable holiday. The logistics of getting to and from the remote Western Isles of Scotland are not straightforward but if it was easy to get to it wouldn't be so peaceful!

Inverness is a great jumping-off point for cycling NCN780. There are good road, rail and air links and we're actually near the middle of the road route between the ferry terminals of Ullapool and Oban.

Our cyclist transport is not a scheduled but operates more like a cyclist taxi service. We will, wherever possible, group smaller parties together to spread the cost if that's what you prefer. Trips to or from Inverness Airport are an extra £30 on top of the prices listed below.

Inverness to Ullapool is about two hours and Inverness to Oban takes around three. We can do transfers at most times of day but for trips between Ullapool and Oban we need to to collect in the morning as it's a five hour journey.

The vehicle and drivers are licenced by The Highland Council which means the vehicle undergoes strict safety inspections and the driver is vetted. We are also required to have specialist insurance.

COVID Info

Coronavirus Info

It is great to be back at work helping cyclists explore the Scottish Highlands again. Everything is taking a little longer as we get used to physical distancing and enhanced hygiene measures. We're also working with a smaller team to stop the workshop getting crowded. Please bear with us, we are not taking any shortcuts but we are still smiling - behind our masks - you'll have to take our word for it.

The transport service has required special attention to reduce the risk of infection between driver and passengers. Measures we have introduced that appear to be working well include:

  • partition between driver and passengers
  • enhanced cleaning of vehicles
  • provision of hand sanitiser
  • compulsory face coverings
  • pausing "shared" trips
