Scotland / Europe
Self Drive Motorcycle Tour


Once in your life feel like a Highlander - on a Harley-Davidson! With our 8 day Self Drive motorcycle tour through Scotland, enjoy the exciting mountain world of the rugged Scottish Highlands and the magnificent nature in the North of the British Isles. After starting in the provincial capital of Edinburgh you will ride to Stirling Castle, where Mary Stuart became Queen of Scotland at the age of 9 months. Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Britain awaits you in Fort William. When you visit Eilean Donan Castle, the castle might look familiar: the first part of the "Highlander" saga was filmed here. After a boatstour on Loch Ness a whisky tasting at the Glenfiddich Distillery at the Whisky Trail awaits you, before the Self Drive motorcycle tour through Scotland ends in Edinburgh.


The Route for the Scotland Motorcycle Tours by Reuthers


The Route:

arrow down Day 1: Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle, Scotland

Welcome to Edinburgh, the Scottish capital - also known as Athens of the north.

arrow down Day 2: Edinburgh > Fort William

Valley of Tears, Scotland

Today you will first pick up your Harley-Davidson rental motorcycle and then visit the Sterling Castle with its 75m high castle rock. In this castle Mary Stuart was crowned at the tender age of only 9 months as the Scottish Queen. Another important site is Glencoe, which we will reach at around noon after driving through the "Valley of Tears". Beneath the highest mountain in Great Britain - Ben Nevis (1343 m) - is your overnight stop and the entrance to the Scottish Highlands: Fort William.

arrow down Day 3: Fort William > Ullapool

Ullapool, Scotland

The Road to the Isles and the Glenfinnan Monument are definitely worth a stop before you visit the famous Elean Donan Castle, where the first part of "Highlander" was filmed. Your overnight stay is planned to be in Ullapool, a small fishing village. Here, so they say, the Scottish wilderness begins.

arrow down Day 4: Ullapool > Tongue

Smoo Caves, Scotland

Today you experience the loneliness of highlands at first hand. Highlight are the Smoo Caves, the largest sea caves in Great Britain. You will spend the night in Tongue, which also has a castle.

arrow down Day 5: Tongue > Golspie

Dunrobin Castle, Scotland

You continue on the "North Coast 500" - the Scottish response to the legendary American Route 66. In the truest sense of the word you cruise on to the most northern point of the British mainland: Dunnet Head with its lighthouse. You'll take your lunchbreak a few miles further in the northernmost village of the British mainland, in John O'Groates, at the end of the road. An additional mandatory stop during this exciting day is Dunrobin Castle with its picture-book garden. The well-preserved castle is also the seat of the Sutherland Clan.

arrow down Day 6: Golspie > Inverness

Loch Ness, Scotland

Starting from Golspie you first drive past Inverness and visit Urquhart Castle with its history of more than 1500 years. Then in Fort Augustus, at the southern end of Loch Ness you should take a boatstour and maybe even the famous monster of Loch Ness, "Nessie" will welcome you...

arrow down Day 7: Inverness > Craigellachie

Glenfiddich Distillery, Whisky Trail, Scotland

A highlight of your Scotland trip is undoubtedly the Culloden Moor, where once the tragic battle between the Scottish clans and the English took place. Passing Brodie Castle and Elgin Cathedral you directly arrive at the Whisky Trail in Scotland. With an extensive tour in one the oldest whisky distilleries in Scotland, the Glenfiddich Distillery, you will learn more about the Scottish whisky. There is a good reason that your overnight stay is close to the distillery.

arrow down Day 8: Craigellachie > Edinburgh

Balmoral Castle, Scotland,

Last day of your Scotland tour. If possible and and before dropping off your Harley-Davidson rental motorcycle in Edinburgh, you visit Balmoral Castle, summer residence of Queen Elizabeth II. or instead the restored Davidson Cottage, home to William C Davidson. In 1857, at the age of eleven he emigrated to the USA with his family. There, he built a shed for his sons. That shed became the first Harley-Davidson® workshop situated on Chestnut Street, now Juneau Avenue, Milwaukee...
