Extra Night / Rest Day
As you cycle through the dramatic Scottish landscape, you will undoubtedly come across a variety of areas that invite further exploration, from fascinating historical towns to lively cities packed with invaluable facilities. Adding in a few extra nights into your cycling holiday will give you ample time to discover all the hidden gems along this remarkable trail.
The capital city of Edinburgh at the start of the trail is a fantastic choice for an extra night's stay, offering a vast amount to see and do. Walk between the stone townhouses in the World Heritage Site of Old Town and New Town; visit Edinburgh Castle, perched atop the remains of an extinct volcano; or take in the incredible city skyline from Arthur's Seat in Holyrood Park, not to mention the countless museums, galleries, theatres and other landmarks that Edinburgh offers. There is certainly something here to satisfy everyone's tastes, including modern and traditional shops, markets, bars and restaurants galore, as well as plenty of health centres and spas for those in need of a little TLC to get warmed up for the adventure ahead.
Cyclers with a keen interest in Scottish history should consider spending an extra day or two in Dunfermline, otherwise known as Scotland's Ancient Capital. There are a wide number of historical venues such as the royal palace, a 12th century abbey - which is the final resting place of Robert the Bruce and 11 other Scottish kings and queens - the restored 15th century Abbot House and the cave in which St Margaret bathed the feet of the poor. As well as the town's royal and monastic past, Dunfermline also has plenty of places to eat and drink, from traditional taverns and inns to contemporary bistros and international cuisine, guaranteed to satisfy every taste.
Dundee is another good option for a rest day, with plenty to see and do to satisfy all interests. Not only is there a vast array of indoor and outdoor activities on offer - including the Green's Cycleway which takes you around the edges of the city itself - but there are also many historical sites of interest to discover. Those interested in medieval history can visit the likes of Mercat Cross, Mains Castle and Claypotts Castle, while those looking for more industrial history can see Cox's Stack and the Tay Rail and Road Bridges, among many other fascinating landmarks that illustrate the progression of the local area from as far back as the 13th century.
Finally, the striking granite city of Aberdeen, nestled amongst the hills and stretching out to the coast, is a perfect place to spend an extra night, especially if you want to extend your holiday that little bit longer. Whether you're after a shopping trip, a chance to discover art and culture or simply time to explore the many great attractions, Aberdeen has entertainment in abundance. While the coastline is one of the best places to spot wildlife such as seabirds and dolphins, the Cairngorms National Park is full of peaks and deep glens that are also home to rare animals such as red deer, golden eagles and red squirrels, giving wildlife lovers plenty to look out for.
