Highland Perthshire; an area famed for dramatic mountains, glens and lochs, ancient castles and unspoilt nature…. the heart of Perthshire is known as Big Tree Country and boasts some of Europe’s most remarkable woodlands. In fact, Perthshire has such a high quality of environment that it actually has a unique opportunity to be or become the best place to be or live in Scotland… But just because it’s the best place to engage with the environment, this doesn’t mean it will just happen if local or regional decision makers (take note Perth & Kinross Council) just continue to supply lip service. What this region needs now more than ever is a lot more forward planning by people with creativity and imagination (local government should realize they are fortunate to be located in this region), as it can only be the best place to engage with the environment if those behind the infrastructure in Perthshire actually start delivering!

What people need in general is an improvement to their quality of life, sustainability and a green/low-carbon economy – and Sustainability is not just environmentalism… it is the combination of society, the economy, and the environment. The UN actually have 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) which they hope to achieve by 2030 (that is only 7 years away now)… if you would like to know more on that front then go online and search for ‘Sustainable Development Goals & United Nations’.

Meanwhile, here in Perthshire, HBT will continue to guide all tours out onto quiet roads. We can reach all corners of the Perthshire countryside using our E-Bikes. And when out on one of our tours you will get to see so much more when out on a bike ride.. from dense woodland and open plains, rare wildlife and stunning scenery.. you will also cycle past ruined castles and ancient distilleries. Our E-Bikes also assist when cycling up hills. So why not join us for a spot of adventure, while breathing in all that fresh air.

Book your Tour

Book today for the upcoming Tour season

Please note that there are only a maximum of 4 places for any given tour. So by booking your bike through the Bike Rent portal you are simply reserving your place on a full day or half day tour. We will then ensure you are provided with the correct bike size on the day of the tour itself.

You can also reserve a place on our ‘E-Bike Taster Experience’ (2-hour mini tour) by either sending us an email with your details, or by completing the Contact Us section at the bottom of this webpage. There are no cash payments at premises, so all these tours must be paid by debit or credit card (at the shop/hub) prior to the tour.

It is also worth mentioning that if the ‘private tour’ option has been booked in advance then there are no other places or bikes available on that day.
