Best road ride: Liddesdale Loop
Fancy a road trip on two wheels? The Liddesdale Loop Road Ride covers over 40 miles of winding country roads. Hop on the short ferry ride over to Corran and follow the A861 through picturesque spots such as Glen Tarbert and Kingairloch. Prepare for stunning scenery, cosy pubs and challenging hillside roads.
Best for a challenge: West Highland Way
The West Highland Way is a long distance walking route which cuts through 96 miles of Highland terrain. Check it out for yourself by following the West Highland Way cycling trail, which follows a demanding, uphill section suitable for experienced riders.
Head north out of town before joining a forest track featuring rocky sections and a flight of steps requiring you to carry your bike. It’s worth it though; the views are incredible!
Bike hire and more
Heading to Fort William without a bike? Not a problem. Scotland’s outdoor capital has several bike rental outlets in town, including Nevis Cycles. Here you’ll find mountain and touring bikes suitable for both adults and children, as well as essential safety equipment and other relevant accessories.
Fancy tapping into some local expertise, or simply feel like hitting the road as part of a larger group? Local cycling group West Highland Wheelers actively encourage non-members to tag along for a ride or two, whilst the
North Argyll Cycle Club is ideal if you find yourself venturing south of Fort William.
Alternatively, head off on your own or in the company of friends with the help of Ride Fort William – a helpful online resource detailing all the best cycling routes in and around town.
