Fat Bike Islay

Explore Islay’s beaches and moorland

Why Fat Bikes?

Fat Bikes allow visitors an exciting way of exploring and experiencing the coast with access to beaches and tracks looking for wildlife, exploring Islay’s natural wonders and historical sites.

Due to their balloon tyres Fat Bikes are particularly ideal for beach riding where they can float over sand and pebbles giving wonderful access to this amazing environment. Not only that, they are amazing fun, simple to ride and no heavier than any normal bike.

We have four main routes and many other options too:

Explore the five-mile long Big Strand beach from the airport (flat)
Three Distilleries pathway with otter tracking along the route (some small hills)
Kintra Hill Track past Frachdale village and forest track. (Moderately hilly)
Kilnaughton to Port-an-Eas waterfall (hilly)
Other rides can include Bridgend woods, Staoisha to Bunnahabhain, Feolin ferry towards the base of the Paps on Jura

We will kit you out and provide a safety demonstration before we start and instruction along the route as required. Trips generally last about 2 to 2½ hours and will include a hot drink and some homemade flapjack on route.

Ability to ride a bike is essential but otherwise these trips are suitable for novices and those with more experience. All trips can be individually tailored to your needs.

Small group sizes (maximum of 4). Minimum age: 12.
