Highlands & Islands 550

Highlands & Islands 550


Bikepacking cross-country route through the Scottish Highlands and Outer Hebrides.


Start and Finish in Poolewe, Wester Ross.


Duration: 13 Days   Distance: 550mi    Elevation: 29,400ft


Incredible mixed terrain route that includes some of the best trails on the HT 550  and a quality combination of Hebridean Way trails and remote wilderness on the Islands.


This is an adventurous route and should be ridden with care, each Wilderness section on the Hebrides can be avoided if necessary. 


Itinerary included is planned for 13 days to allow ample time for ferry crossings and logistics. It is possible to complete in less.
