Highlander Tour 3HT

United Kingdom

It’s about the rough beauty of the Highlands, the mighty castle ruins and single track roads.

With a guided tour in the Triumph factory in Hinckley we start our motorcycle tour to Scotland. We head north through the North York Moors and across Hadrian’s Wall to finally arrive in Scotland. The tour itinerary samples the finest roads Great Britain has to offer including some major historical sites. Threading your way through the glass-like lochs, the tour takes in iconic locations like Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond, Culloden, Balmoral Castle and the stunning Isle of Skye.

A rest day gives plenty of time to enjoy the historic city of Inverness, or to seek out the elusive “Nessie“, whose home is said to be the nearby Loch Ness. Of course, you could always choose to get back on the bike riding up to the remote west coast of Scotland. Throughout the trip there will be plenty of opportunities to sample the fine fresh local products and to round off your day with a nip of the famous Scotch whisky. As with all Triumph Adventure motorcycle tours, all the essentials are covered.

Highlander Tour

This Triumph Highlander Tour really did give us a deep insight into Great Britain’s history. Dreamlike small roads took us through beautiful scenery, with incredible castles and buildings nestled on the smooth hills of Scotland. The hotels on the tour were very comfortable and the motorcycles offered (Triumph) were great to ride. Also, the tour guides seemed to have been born in the touring area as they have pampered us with knowledge which only locals could have. Every tour we have taken with Edelweiss Bike Travel so far has been great, from planning to booking just perfect.
