In May 2012, I toured the Hebrides in Scotland by bicycle. This page is a round up of blog posts on that trip, including reports of each day and some practical thoughts and suggestions if you fancy travelling through this stunning part of Scotland by bicycle yourself.
Catching the ferry in Oban, my itinerary took in Barra, The Usits, Harris, Skye, Moidart and the Ardnamurchan and Mull. Although I don’t avidly record miles when I’m touring, the 300 or so I covered by road is manageable in a week.
My journey was blessed with superb weather by and large. I was lucky. The best piece of advice I can give any rider is to be prepared for the worst, including a bail out option should conditions really deteriorate.
That said, I wouldn’t want to put you off. Combining the bike and ferry in this part of the world is a wonderful experience and highly recommended.
