Cycling is a great way to get around the Isle of Eigg. Visitors are not permitted to bring cars to the island and there’s so much to explore on Eigg that sometimes walking just isn’t fast enough!
With one single track road across the island and very few vehicles, Eigg is a very safe place to cycle and it’s difficult to get lost.
For the more adventurous, our mountain bikes are perfect to explore the additional tracks and trails. The Gruilin Track is a rocky trail leading out to the ruined settlements of Gruilin, overlooking the Isle of Muck. It’s the perfect place to take a picnic and soak in the serenity of an uninhabited part of the island. You may even spot the Golden and White Tailed Eagles!
Bike hire is £15 per day, with discounts available for multi day hire (minimum of 3 days). All of our bikes are hired with helmets and puncture repair kits.
About Our Bikes
Our fleet is primarily made up of Giant bikes, a brand known for it’s build quality and rider led design.
We have eight front suspension Revel mountain bikes, reliable, comfortable to ride and tough enough to explore the tracks and cheeky trails across Eigg.
We also have six Giant hybrid bikes. These have a bigger, thinner tyre than the mountain bikes, so they roll easily and quickly on the road. We have four unisex Roam models and two female specific Rove models which perform equally to the Roam but have a lower crossbar for comfort.
We also hire child seats, nifty double trailers and tag-along bikes to allow younger children to enjoy cycling on Eigg. Our Bellelli child bike seat is rear mounted, suitable for children up to 22kg and recommended for infants over 9 months old. The childproof safety buckle adjusts giving two positions for increased safety and a snug fit. Our Avenir Entrepid 2 seater child trailer great fun and is suitable for up to two children not exceeding maximum combined weight of 100lbs (approx 45kg).
Our Avenir tag along bikes are perfect for children that are keen to experience cycling but are not quite yet ready to venture out on their own. The tag-along bikes can be fitted to the majority of our fleet and are suitable for children up to 38.5kg.
