Scotland: Edinburgh and Beyond

June 8 - June 20, 2022

Exploring different cultures and lands is always an exciting venture. When one does it from the seat of a bicycle it becomes a world of its own. With gentle speeds allowing the rider to enjoy the simple pleasures of the vistas beyond belief and encounters with people who would never be seen if passed in a motorized vehicle, the world becomes so small and beautiful.

Scotland is located in the northwest corner of the United Kingdom surrounded by three sides of water and bordered to the south with England. While considered part of the Commonwealth, it holds its own unique qualities that shine through at each turn of the road. Join eighteen riders on this WomanTours' trip that will start and end in Edinburgh looping down the east side of the country and back. Click on the links below to follow along. "Dia duit"!!
