Looking for some Scottish riding away from the trail centre hotspots? Take a look at the holiday offerings from Scottish Mountain Bike Guides, which has just announced its 2008 schedule.
Scottish Mountain Bike Guides offers a wide range holidays, skills courses and guided rides throughout Scotland. Using qualified guides, high quality accommodation and the fantastic trails that Scotland has to offer, they aim to provide the mountain bike experience of a lifetime for all levels of rider, beginner and expert alike.
SMBG’s Phil McKane said ,”Our guided holidays are proving very popular. The Coast to Coast is a week of classic Scottish riding which takes in the Great Glen, the Corrieyarick Pass and the Cairngorms. Its fantastic riding in stunning locations – mountain biking as good as it gets.”
“I’m very excited about our Northern Highlands and Skye trip, which has four days riding in Wester Ross and three days on the Isle of Skye. The singletrack is amazing and riding amongst the mountains of Torridon and the Cullin means spectacular views, if you can take your eyes off the trail!”
Not quite “out there” enough for you? SMBG also runs self-sufficient Wilderness Camping trips. It’s current offering is a four day Tour of the Cairngorms, riding to some truly remote areas of this fantastic mountain range through Glen Tilt, the Gaick Pass and the beautiful Glen Feshie. It’ll also be running a new West Highland Wild Camping trip, a three day self-sufficient tour that starts at Fort William and circumnavigates Ben Nevis and the Mamore mountain range, before finishing at the Witches Trails, home of the 2007 Mountain Bike World Championships.
