Start/finish Dundee. Cycle through Scotland's often overlooked north-east. Spectacular scenery, verdant countryside, quiet roads, a visit to Findhorn Ecovillage plus unforgettable climbs into the Cairngorm ski areas. See distilleries, red squirrels, very small towns and the north sea coast. Hotel, SYHA and private hostel accommodation.

This tour is suitable for reasonably fit cyclists who are willing to keep going at a steady pace and donít mind some occasional climbing and descending. The route takes in a mixture of roads including some A roads, these are unavoidable in this remote area. But most of the busier roads are on the first and last sections of the trip. The first half of the tour follows the Aberdeenshire and Moray coast and enjoys seascapes, fishing villages, tea and cake shops and some rich countryside. We will visit Findhorn Eco Community, a model of sustainable living and if possible I'll offer a dolphin and whale watching boat tour. The penultimate day sees us climbing through the Cairngorm ski areas. There will be one rest day midway through the tour.
