Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright, ScotlandScotland
So many memories! Our hosts, Warren and Esther, were superb. Our routes were well thought out. We saw rolling hills and valleys and sheep and ocean. The B &B's were comfortable with hosts who went above the call of duty for our comfort.

Flying Dutchman Bike & Sail the Highlands of ScotlandScotland
The trip was fun despite almost nothing going as expected. It rained so much we often could not ride so we had fewer days of riding and less distance when we did ride, it was impossible to get clothing dry once they got wet, the cabins were tiny, and neither the guides nor the crew were Scottish or knew much about Scotland. And other than this superficial survey no one has asked for any substantive feedback. Nonetheless, the group bonded and we had fun.

Hi Nadia,I'm sorry to hear the weather wasn't ideal. When it comes to the weather we hope for the best but unfortunately, we have no control over that. As for the cabin sizes, we mention on the boat page "the ship was equipped with 10 small but functionally furnished cabins". There are also pictures that give you a good idea of the cabin size and layout. We have spoken to our local partner and despite not being Scottish, the guides spend a lot of time in Scotland each year and are very experienced in this region. We have never had a complaint. Furthermore, we are very proud of our survey and feel it serves it's purpose without being too lengthy or cumbersome to fill out. We welcome feedback, good or bad, and you can alway give us a call or email us to share. We hope that next time we can help find a tour that fits your expectations.

Terrific!!! Good ebikes. Love the Turbo to get over hills. First time I have used and still had a great work out at end of day but help in those windy and hilly moments. Friendly service and everything went smooth. Would definitely recommend.SUGGESTION: Sleep after a long day is critical. The mattress should be good for the rest we need. I will say that the Killin B&B was not good. Bad old mattresses. Slept terrible. And the Double room was so small it was difficult to move around in for 2 people with their bags.Also, would recommend a clarification of the riding instructions from Aberfeldy to Pitlochry. Not real clear. Be sure to tell them DO NOT take the foot path to Pitlochry. Overall though would heartily recommend this tour. Much thanks.

WOW! Scotland has some FABULOUS cycle paths and this trip made great use of them. The views and the castles were wonderful! The first place we stayed (Abbotsford Lodge in Callander, and luckily for three nights) was an INCREDIBLE treat! The owners were so nice and accommodating, the rooms were new and very comfortable, and the FOOD was so high quality with so much variety! Take this trip, it's wonderful!

Support people from Hooked on Cycling were never there. Bikes were just left at our first guest house along with a very poor set of directions. The bikes were great. We had to get them adjusted ourselves. The directions were incomplete, we got lost a few times. The flooded out Alythe hotel should have been substituted with somewhere else. The rooms were OK but the whole place was very musty smelling. My husband is very allergic to mold. He had to take medication before going inside. I know this trip was self-guided but even the locals couldn't figure out which way we were supposed to go when they looked at our maps.
