The Highland Trail is the pinnacle of UK bikepacking routes. It takes in 550 miles and 50,000 feet of Scotland at its most rugged and beautiful. It features some seriously remote terrain including world renowned single track, rough dirt roads, hidden glens, and lochs, not to mention a few testing hike-a-bike sections. The 550 is a self-supported Individual Time Trial Race in which even the best climbers and technical descenders will find some terrain beyond their ability.
