    https://www.motorcyclescotland.com/ I used one of their routes last year and all was good. They are based in Moffat and I can recommend their food, plenty of biker friendly hotels there too. Also http://advscotland.com/ say hello to Craig. Lots of recommended camping and places to ride on there.

    Hi enjoy your trip but please beware that motorcycle theft in Edinburgh is rampant sorry to say best to avoid Edinburgh or make sure you get digs with secure parking

    If you're looking for some good riding, Id head west and ride up to Skye. From Edinburgh, head over to Stirling, and take the A811 and connect with the A82 and head north. The ride from Loch Lomond all the way up to Fort William is spectacular. The ride from Fort William up to the Isle of Skye (Head to Portree to see the Old Man of Storr) is also great, a few castles to see and great view. From Skye head over to Inverness. This whole route is fairly hilly and mountainous. From Inverness head back down to Edinburgh through the Cairngorns, or make a stop in St. Andrews and follow the coast back to Edinburgh.

    As a real Scotland enthusiast, attached my favorite Scotland route. Really, really beautiful!

    If you have any questions, please ask. I've been there many times, so i probably have an answer :)
