Bike Guiding

Explore Highland can offer mountain bike guiding services for individuals or groups. This can include transportation for small groups, plus bespoke guiding services on local routes and trail riding centres across Highland, Moray, Lochaber & West Coast.

Based in Inverness, Explore Highland can offer a centralised service including picking cyclists & bike boxes from Inverness Airport, bus station, train station or from your local accommodation. If you prefer to forward your bike by courier, bikes boxes can be easily collected from the local national courier’s office and be ready in the office for your arrival. 

With a bike stand and a full range of tools (plus some spares) on site, you can build your bike with help.

Local Trail Centres

Inverness, the Capital of the Highlands is well places for a number of trails. These range from a 15mins to 2-hour drive.

Limitless Highland Options

Looking for something more scenic or adventurous, within the office we have the full range of OS Landranger maps, a shelf full of recommended Scottish biking trails or just go with our local knowledge and expertise to suggest the best ride out depending on group riding level and weather.

Night Riding

Looking for a night riding adventure, we can even help supply MTB off-road bike lights to ensure the trail ahead is well illuminated. 

Lights used: One23 Extreme Bright – 1000 Lumen lights and power packs.

A Bike for All Reasons

Donald has his own fleet of bikes to guide with. These include his full suspension Cube Stereo, his fat bike for winter and bike packing, his Giant OCR road bike and the do-everything cyclocross bike.

Bike Packing Kit: Alpkit 

Bike Hire in Inverness

Not got your own bike, we can help arrange road, hybrid or mountain bike hire from our local outfitter Ticket to Ride. They are based close to the centre of Inverness at Bellfield Park.

Transporting Bikes

Transporting bikes is easy with roof-mounted racks, twin and quad tow ball mounted bike racks. This still leaves plenty of space and comfort for passengers and biking gear within the nine-seater minibus.
