Celtic Glens is an epic ride taking you through Scotland’s stunning countryside, coasts and cities. Starting in historic Aberdeen, cycle through to enjoy breath-taking views of the Moray Firth coastline and spot the most northerly colony of Bottlenose Dolphins in the world. Turning inland, Culloden Battlefield marks where the 1745 Jacobite Rising came to a tragic end in one of the most harrowing battles in British history.
EuroVelo 1 then links Inverness, the cultural capital of the Scottish Highlands, with the former shipbuilding city Glasgow via two fantastic National Parks. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park contains picturesque lochs, forests and bustling tourist towns. The Cairngorms National Park extends over the UK's largest mountain range, with heather-clad moors and ancient pine forests. Leaving the city of Glasgow behind, head for the Ayrshire coast and seaside towns before leaving it all behind in the remote countryside around Galloway Forest Park. Head back to civilization at Newton Stewart and explore Wigtown, Scotlands’ National Booktown before heading to the ferry port in Stranraer.
