Fàilte! Welcome to the new home of bikepacking in Scotland. While bikepacking is possibly nothing new, its popularity is constantly growing.
With its very good access laws, Scotland is a unique country for bikepacking. Rich in history with an abundance of heritage paths crossing the vast landscape, quiet country roads, purpose-built mountain bike trails, and a great network of bothies and hostels, great local cuisine and friendly people, it is hard to beat as an off-road cycling destination.
After creating the Capital Trail and riding around the world on a singlespeed bike through 26 countries, I am back in bonnie Scotland. Bikepacking Scotland is a work in progress, but my aim is to give you ideas for routes, gear reviews and inspiration to explore Scotland’s wonderful scenery on two wheels.
You can follow Bikepacking Scotland on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and subscribe to the free newsletter here. Please spread the word and tell your friends. And enjoy the ride, long or short!
Thanks for visiting!
