Description

The 37 day routes and 22 link routes brought together in this guide offer cyclists of all abilities the opportunity to island-hop by bike across the Scottish Hebrides, visiting over 20 islands in six sections: Clyde and Kintyre; Colonsay, Islay and Jura; Mull, Coll and Tiree; Skye and Raasay; Barra and the Uists; and Harris and Lewis.

This comprehensive guidebook contains all the information you need - from ferry schedules to refreshment stops and bike repair shops - to plan a 600-mile tour of the whole lot, or a clutch of day rides from a single base, and everything in between. Each route is graded and accompanied by a profile, colour maps and information about links to ferries and other routes providing a huge network of options.
