An alternative to the Lands End to John o’Groats tour? A 14-day cycle starting on the 21st May.

Travelling up through England via the Kentish Downs, Rutland, the Peak District, the west Yorkshire Dales and the eastern side of the Lake District.

Then onwards up through Ayrshire, the Kintyre Peninsula, and the coastline of the western highlands of Scotland to Durness; including cycling across parts of the Isles of Arran, Mull, & Skye.

Hopefully the final stage on the last day will be a short ferry across the Kyle of Durness followed by a mountain bike trip to the lighthouse at cape Wrath – weather permitting!
