Trends / Health & Wellness

Get on your bike in Scotland and you’ll have a chance to experience the best of the country at a relaxed pace.

Head to the Outer Hebrides to ride the Hebridean Way, which runs the length of the island chain. It’s 185 miles from end to end and the whole thing usually takes six days.

If you want a shorter trip, try the ride from Edinburgh down to the sea. Hire a bike in town and ride out for lunch in Leith, where the Royal Yacht Britannia is found.

Get out into the nature and hit the trails at Devilla Forest, where you can mountain bike through an impressive expanse of woodland home to lots of red squirrels. Another good spot for nature lovers is the Loch Leven Heritage Trail, where you might spot osprey, otters and kingfishers while you ride.

For sheer natural beauty it’s hard to beat the Montrose Basin, a huge tidal estuary also home to plenty of animals. If you are up for a challenge, take on the Assynt Achiltbuie Circular trail in the Highlands. It’s a 70-mile stretch that will take you past lovely lochs and huge mountains.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
