Epic Rides in Scotland

Isle of Skye

This Epic Ride takes place on one of the most magical island in the world. Isle of Skye. It is the largest island in the Inner Hebrides, a group of 35 inhabited islands as well as 44 uninhabited islands.

Since 1995 a bridge from the mainland allows an easier journey to the Isle (Some would say it has also changed the dynamic island way of life)


The Isle of Skype is the largest of the Inner Hebrides, an archipelago of the West Coast. 5 hrs drive from either Glasgow or Edinburgh and 2.5 hrs from Inverness.

The Ride

As of 2019, mostly asphalt with alot of single lanes and narrow roads. It’s a tourist hot spot in the summer months. With a lot of Camper-vans slowly circling the island.

Neist Point and Lighthouse

The Lighthouse is the most westerly point on the Isle of Skye. On a clear day you’ll have views to the Outer Hebrides.

It’s a lovely hike around the points were you can see whales, dolphins, porpoises and the huge basking shark. You’ll also see heaps of sea-birds flying around.
