Hebrides short break holiday accommodation in Lewis Harris and Skye

FROM ULLAPOOL OR OBAN, VISITING LEWIS, HARRIS, BERNERAY, NORTH UIST, BENBECULA, SOUTH UIST, ERISKAY AND BARRA

We suggest a relaxed, eight night itinerary - other durations are available.

Travel here by the method most convenient to you, then use our modern hybrid touring bikes (including pannier bags and helmet).

Electric assisted bikes may be booked at a supplement of £18 per day. 

You might travel by car or train to Oban (secure parking), then join the scenic ferry route to Barra. Return via the Stornoway - Ullapool ferry, or use public transport back to South Uist for an Oban ferry. 

Or, fly from Glasgow to Stornoway or the beach airport at Barra, returning directly from your finishing point; we can book flights if required (add £110 low season, £160 main season). 

We'll offer you a choice of sensible itineraries, based on experience gained by our own staff who have enjoyed 'cycle hopping' here. See overleaf and our web site for more information.  

Bookings not advised outside of April-September - while we experience some wonderful days from October to March that are perfect for cycling, the chance of eight in a row is rather less likely.
