Scotland's Adventure Coast

In Argyll & the Isles, the thrills are all natural and we have some of the best accessible cycling to offer or check out. There are plenty of options for outdoor enthusiasts with many loops and day trip bike rides plus mountain biking trails waiting to be explored.

Our forest parks are some of the best areas in the country for real cross-country cycling, and we've got The Caledonia Way long-distance bike route, as well as a collection of island loops. 

We know it’s hard to pick one, so here’s an overview of some recommendations from Global Cycling Network, the World's #1 creator of cycling video content.

Oban Cycling with Robin McKelvie

Easing into Oban I’m in a train carriage of happy cyclists. No fighting for space on a busy train for us as we’re enjoying Scotrail’s new Highland Explorer, the first dedicated bike-friendly carriages in the UK. I’m smiling too as I’m about to explore the network of cycling trails that snake off from Oban around the scenic wonderland of Argyll and her isles.
