About Bikerbnb's Highland Scramble
Curated Routes Designed by Local Riders show you the best of the Highlands and Islands
Our Highland Scramble guided motorcycle tours all start and finish in Edinburgh, Scotland. All of our experiences cover up to 1,000 miles over six days on mostly tarmac as off-roading in Scotland is essentially illegal unless you have permission from a private landowner or forestry commission.
We kick off our rides at about 9:30am each morning and plan to return to our evening accommodation around 6:00pm each day with plenty of stops for coffee, lunch and off-the-bike experiences. Scotland is small but mighty and features a wide variety of terrain. We have tried to create some new thematic rides for 2023 to show you new parts of the country and unique accommodation options.
If you are looking for a little bit of everything, you should try our North Coast Traverse. On this classic ride, we’ll curate a whistle-stop tour across nearly the entire country. If you prefer to spend more time focusing on just one region like Scotland’s rugged west coast, you should consider joining our Skye or Island Traverse.
Bikerbnb adventure tours take into account differing riding abilities – so if you have any concerns about the length of the trip, terrain or riding in a group – just drop a member of our team a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you sorted.
Five nights in unique accommodation to help you relax off the bike each evening
Bikerbnb prides itself on offering world-class accommodation that is not only incredibly relaxing, but provides the piece of mind that your motorcycle will remain where you parked it. All of our accommodation options across our tours feature secure parking, drying facilities in the event of rain and convenient locations next to some of the best roads in the world.
During The Highland Scramble, we will start our ride at Bikerbnb HQ at Saltire Motorcycles, Edinburgh’s premier independent motorcycle dealership. From Edinburgh, we will then travel north to Perthshire and beyond.
We offer two types of accommodation packages – shared or single. At checkout, please specify if you prefer the shared or single supplement and if you are traveling with another rider or partner so we can plan accordingly.
Breakfast and dinner featuring fresh and local ingredients
Those familiar with Bikerbnb know that what we do off the bike is just as important as the riding. And moreover, we really pride ourselves in the quality of the food and drink served on all of adventure tours. It goes without saying that you won’t go hungry while travelling with Bikerbnb.
Breakfast and dinner are included in the price of the Highland Scramble. Meals feature local and seasonal ingredients prepared fresh for you. We will experience a taste of the country featuring the freshest seafood, meats, produce and whisky served at rustic farms to regal country estates.
If you have any special dietary preferences please just let us know and we’ll be sure to accommodate your request.
Professional photography to capture the trip of a lifetime
Bikerbnb works with partners like Royal Enfield, Fuel Motorcycles, Yeti, QuadLock, Rev’it! and many food and drink brands to support content marketing and product launches. We work with professionally trained photographers, filmmakers and drone pilots to capture snaps that you will print out and put up on your office wall.
A comprehensive album free of charge will be provided within two weeks of returning from our ride.
Support vehicle to carry gear, luggage and provide assistance
The Highland Scramble is a fully supported ride. We will be followed by a support vehicle where you can safely store your luggage, gear and your motorcycle in the rare event a mechanical.
A certified technician and trained first aid responders are present on all Bikerbnb adventure experiences. If there is an incident involving you or your motorcycle, we will do as much as we can to ensure that you can continue to enjoy your holiday.

We are proud to offer a fleet of Royal Enfield motorcycles for hire from our Edinburgh workshop. If you are interested in hiring a bike for one of our upcoming tours, please check out our rental page for competitively priced and reliable bikes across the 2023 Royal Enfield lineup.

The Highland Scramble features Bikerbnb’s unique motorcycle-friendly accommodation. During the ride we will stay in hand-picked accommodation that is secure and especially suited for motorcycle travelers. Depending on the tour, we will stay in a mix of accommodation from yurts to Scottish country estates, bed & breakfasts and pods.
We try to price our trips fairly to accommodate different budgets. The Highland Scramble takes a lot of consideration, planning, coordination and time! The knowledge and experience of the organisers is second to none and every detail is carefully collaborated. From unique locations, specialised kit, great food, support vehicle, insurance, content producers, chefs, and experienced staff, we offer an incredibly competitive product compared to other tour operators.
The route is designed to explore the best that Scotland has to offer. While some roads will be more challenging than others, the ultimate goal is to go at your own pace and enjoy the beautiful scenes along the way. You may feel you want to push out of the comfort zone but we encourage you to ride to a level you feel safe and comfortable with.
We aim to ride up to 200 miles per day, depending on the type of roads we take. On the smaller twisty roads, we will allocate more time to enjoy the scenery! We anticipate each leg of the journey should approximate 5-6 hours of riding, with breaks in between for lunch and coffee. Evening meals are aimed to be served around 8:00pm.
Please do and shout from the roof tops! Each ride will be allocated a unique hashtag for sharing and following.
Unfortunately no, we can only offer accommodation, food and support to those who have paid in full for the tickets in advance.
The Highland Scramble is not designed for the faint hearted. If weather conditions are abysmal then we will hold tight for a prolonged pitstop, however, we are not ‘the sunshine only’ club. Weather conditions that pose safety issues to our riders will be taken into account but the bottom line is, come fully prepared and hope for the best!
Everyone participating will be at different levels of riding ability. If you wish to go ahead or take your time, the route will be shared with you on a group chat. We will also send you the route in advance for you to study. The support vehicle is only a phone call away so don’t panic.
Our support vehicle will be there to help along the way. Equipped with tools and knowledge, we can assist with a roadside repair or pop the bike in the back. You can then be taken to the final destination of the day or taken to a local garage and check in somewhere, the choice is yours.
You will be responsible for paying for your own fuel and any additional refreshments along the way. You will also need to pay for lunch and alcohol. The rest is sorted by your Bikerbnb.
You’ll still need to purchase individual tickets to cover both of your accommodation and food costs. The tickets are sold per person, not per bike.
We have limited spaces on each scramble so we can only sell tickets for set dates. If you need to change a date, we will need to know in advance to see if we can accommodate you on a preferred date, but we cannot guarantee a spot.
