Western Isles – Island Hopping.
I did a “Barra to the Butt” trip a few years back. Great for cycling. Worth visiting Barra and Eriskay if you are going to do it. Also – the ferry from North Uist to Harris isn’t to be missed so you might want to reconsider that last couple of legs.
I reckon you’d be rushed to take in Mull too. Best saved for another day/week.Posted 4 years agoPickersSubscriber
It’s a fantastic ride – did this last year over 11 days starting and finishing in Inverness, at a very leisurely pace. Would be not difficult to do it in 8 or 9 days if you’re quicker than me (and you are, trust me)Posted 4 years ago
And don’t miss Barra or Harris – they’re both great placesmcmoonterMember
I joined Ton and the Sweary Northerners on an Inner Hebrides tour in September.Posted 4 years agonbtMemberChrisE wrote:
Mrs ChrisE did it. She had a fantastic time. Apparently you can leave a car in the Tesco carpark in Oban for free (for a week or two) with no arguments
Not sure about that but think the car park outside the leisure centre is ok, it’s only a five minute ride away anyway
We’ve been thinking of this kind of thing – Oban to Lochboisdale, all the way up the uists to port of ness then back to tarbert, over to skye, down Ardnamurchan and perhaps nip over to mull for the last leg back to Oban. Two weeks for us, that’s about 300 milesScotRoutes wrote:
But getting on the train with your bike is part of the adventure!
Try that with a tandem. Then try doing that with your mates *also* on their tandem. If you can do that, can you buy my lottery ticket for me please? 🙂Posted 4 years agomcmoonterMember
think me and the lads are heading up that way again in september, starting from Oban and heading to the islands we did not do in september just gone.
so Moonter and Druidh, if you fancy it……..
I’m off to the States in September, hot spring touring and tree hugging.Posted 4 years ago
