Scottish cycling holidays in the picturesque Fife countryside
One of the finest ways to see Scotland is on two wheels, and with the development of the Kingdom of Fife Cycle Ways – a network of over 300 miles of dedicated Fife cycle routes along quiet country lanes, disused railway lines and forest tracks, Elderburn Luxury Lodges are the perfect base for cycling holidays in Scotland.
There really is something for cyclists of all abilities: from the relatively flat 8-mile West Fife Cycle Way, which is suitable for both adults and children, to the 103-mile Kingdom Route, a circular trail that runs between the Forth and Tay road bridges. The latter actually runs through St Andrews making it totally accessible for Elderburn guests! If you choose to take up this particular challenge you will also find yourself riding through old mining towns, the Cleish Hills, and Tentsmuir Nature Reserve, experiencing a mixture of on and off-road cycling along the way.
The Ports of Tay is a 29-mile route that is very popular with families. This route takes in some beautiful coastal towns, allowing you to take in some additional Fife attractions along the way, and also explores Tentsmuir Forest with a number of off-road routes. If mountain biking is your preference then a great option is the Fife Forest Circle – a 52-mile mixed road and forest route between Inverkeithing, Devilla Forest and Blair Adam Forest.
Another adventure we would recommend – the Fife to Angus Cycle Route – takes you a little further and has the added benefit of stunning views of the east coast of Scotland. At 65 miles it’s perhaps a little tough for families with young children, but you will find yourself in lovely seaside towns like Broughty Ferry and Carnoustie, so take time to enjoy the views.
