Suilven with a Cycling and Walking Approach One-day tour

Our partner: Mckenzie Mountaineering - Guided Walking Adventures


This is a very exciting way of climbing this magnificent hill. Instead of having a long walk in and out for the ascent, we will cycle in, leave the bikes at the bottom of the big steep ascent and walk to the westerly summit Caisteal Liath for breathtaking views all around.

The return is on the same route we walked up and cycled in. With this approach we make a long day walking wise much more enjoyable and allowing more time for breaks.

An iconic day gets even more epic by combining two outdoor activities, cycling and walking. You can bring your own bike or hire one through us with the help of Ullapool Bike Hire.

We offer this day entirely as a walking trip as well on either the same dates or separate.

Ride details: 9 miles, 14.5 km – Ascent 115 m, Descent 115 m – Cycling time 1.5 h
