Cycling the Hebridean Way


The Hebridean Way, National Cycle Route 780, is a 185 mile journey along the length of the Outer Hebrides. It crosses 10 islands, passing some of Britain’s most dramatic beaches and stunning ancient sites. The human and natural history are fascinating. The culture of the islands is very special. If you haven’t visited…you should. And a bicycle is the perfect way to travel around them!

Cycling the Hebridean Way  was first published in December 2016. The second edition came out in November 2017 with all listings fully checked and revised.

Cycling UK included it at number 6 in their Top Ten Books for Christmas 2017

The guidebook contains all the information you need to plan your trip:

  • Route descriptions
  • 1:50,000 OS maps
  • Full listings for accommodation and refreshment providers
  • Information about history, natural history and points of interest
  • Suggested detours and walks
  • Getting to and from the route, bike businesses etc


We offer an updated listings service: if you’d like a copy of the update sheet, please contact us on And if you know of any changes, we’d love to hear about them.
