Island hopping through the Hebrides and the islands in the Firth of Clyde by bike is a magical and varied experience.

The islands give a range of riding conditions that vary from the steep hills of Arran and Skye to the windswept peat moors of the Western Isles. Coll and Tiree barely rise above sea level and provide easy rides as long as there is little wind, rides on Mull are challenging whatever the weather, while visitors to a compact island like Great Cumbrae will find a surprising variety of cycling in a small area.

Whether you?re putting together a fortnight?s tour or just enjoying a few day rides from a single base, this comprehensive but pocket-sized guide is packed with useful information to make the most of your trip.
