Highland Scramble FAQ’s
No. We welcome all types of motorcycles. However there is some off -roading required to reach a secret location deep on a Highland farm. Fear not, we will get you down by other means. We would recommend taking a bike you don’t mind taking off road and getting a bit muddy.
Yes the support vehicle is there for extra luggage, tools and to pick up any breakdowns and some emergency fuel just in case.
Food and soft drinks for breakfast and supper are included in the ticket price. You will need to cover your lunch costs.

We want to offer a trip that appeals to all different types of riders. So we price 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 volunteers etc. We feel all of the above is calculated attentively and reasonably.
The route is designed with variety and 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. One of your hosts is located off road and has a forestry circuit we have access too.
The Highland Scramble Traverse features Bikerbnb’s unique motorcycle-friendly accommodation. During the ride we will stay in five-meter Bell canvas tents, nicely appointed with beds and duvets, cozy bothy pods, Scottish country estates and sometimes even a Swedish-style bunkhouse just outside John O’Groats.
Yes, generally the accommodation is shared throughout The Highland Scramble Traverse. Due to limited availability in the north of Scotland, it is difficult to find accommodation facilities that can support 12-15 guests each with individual sleeping arrangements. If you are traveling with a group or partner, we will endeavor to place you with your ride partner during the journey. If shared accommodation is an issue, there are some private options along the traverse. Please enquiry with the team at email@example.com if this is an issue. Thank you.
We aim to Scramble for around 180-250 miles per day, depending on the type of roads we take. The smaller, twisty ‘B’ roads, we allow more time for and then the bigger ‘A’ roads are better for a bit of twist grip and road rip! We anticipate each leg of the journey should be about 5-6 hours of riding, with breaks in between. Evening meals are aimed to be served around 7.30pm.
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. Come and join us for a scramble, a tea and some craic if you’re passing though!
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, we appreciate that. 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 your lunches as well. The rest is sorted by your bikerbnb hosts and team.
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.
Yes, of course, we are now offering Royal Enfield Interceptors and Himalayans for rental. Speak to a member of the team for more info.
