Mark Beaumont on a bike at Callanish Stones, Lewis

185 miles. 10 islands. 6 causeways. 2 ferry crossings.
Do you have what it takes to conquer the Hebridean Way?

A fantastic way to experience the Outer Hebrides is to follow the Hebridean Way Cycling Route.

In March 2016, Mark Beaumont, record breaking endurance cyclist, took on the challenge to launch the new Hebridean Way Cycling Route by cycling the full length from Vatersay in the South (Barra), to the Butt of Lewis in the north, in just 24 hours. 185 miles, 10 islands, 6 causeways, 2 boat crossings and just 12 hours in the saddle!
