Cycle Touring in Northern Scotland is a Cicerone guidebook to a 528-mile circular cycle tour around northern Scotland. 

Starting and finishing in the Highland capital Inverness, the circular route passes through the ancient counties and districts of Wester Ross, Sutherland, Caithness, Easter Ross and the Black Isle. The route is suitable for mountain, touring and road bikes: the going is entirely on asphalt-surfaced roads, though many are quiet with little traffic.

Boasting stunning scenery and rich historical interest, cyclists will be treated to mile upon mile of unspoilt wilderness. The journey takes in varied landscapes of craggy mountains, verdant glens, rolling peat moorland dotted with lochs and wild rugged coastlines - and if the scenery isn't enough, there are many distilleries and micro-breweries on or near the route guaranteed to entice. With notes on history, geology, wildlife and local points of interest, the guide offers a perfect way to get to know Scotland's captivating far north.

Featuring:
- Clear and concise route descriptions

- 1:150,000 mapping and gradient profiles

- Suggested schedules and practical information - including hostel/bunkhouse accommodation, official campsites and services for cyclists
