Bikepacking Scotland’s Amazing West Coast | Can Manon Survive Her First Adventure?

Close ×


The Scottish countryside is some of the best around for biking and camping and in recent years, Scotland made a real effort to increase the accessibility of many areas for cyclists and adventurers. Sustainable methods of transport like Scotrail trains and CalMac ferries make getting to stunning places like Argyll and Bute all the more convenient for our rides into the wilderness!

To showcase this, ultra-endurance cyclist and keen bike packer Jenny Graham takes out our very own Manon Lloyd on a multi-day bikepacking trip on part of the “Wild About Argyll” 400 mile bike route. Yes, track cyclist and total bike packing beginner Manon, who has camped only once in her life and never rides in the rain – what could possibly go wrong?

Check out the route on Komoot:
