Year two of the NC500 on the perfect machine, with the perfect gear from Highland Motorcycle Hire. I will always return to a company who put their customers experience in front of everything else, friendly, honest and a pleasure to deal with. Raymond made sure the bike was right, the gear all fitted properly and thankfully sorted me with rain gear. Put quite simply I wont go anywhere else – Do this, do it with these guys and enjoy the extremely reasonable rates for your experience. Sincere thanks for another effortless year back on two wheels lads.
Sorry I missed you Raymond on my return. I would summarise my experience of you and your company and the days of riding as an absolute pearler, a bonny time. The Africa Twin is a weapon and I appreciated its power and design; I was showered upon quite a lot but remained relatively dry and even on the day when it poured I was comfortable and secure. The whole experience from booking online, our first meeting, the day of arrival with the provision of equipment and the ease of business was easy and a pleasure. Thank you very much for making the whole experience one of a lifetime. I think that I actually did the NC500 the equivalent of four times with amount of miles that I covered. Many thanks to Kenny for giving me a lift into town, it made life so much easier. We had a great conversation on the way and we ended up right in the middle of town. Once again, thank you very much.
Had a fantastic experience doing the North Coast 500. Highland superbike hire is the place to get you bike. Raymond is super accommodating and I would highly recommend his services. Bike rental price is very competitive and he has a large range of well maintained bikes as well as new models to choose from.
Raymond was super accommodating, hiring a motorcycle out at the last minute for my husband and I , and providing all the riding gear we needed, along with suggestions where to go. He even was able to fix a glitch with the GPS overnight so it was ready for us in the morning. All of these things for a great price, you can’t go wrong renting from him.
I searched for awhile to find a good rate for the 10 days we would be riding in scotland, and the bikes that I wanted. Raymond was very helpful. When we arrived he had the bikes ready with the luggage already for us to load up. I had the T120 and my husband had the 800GS. Both bikes were in tip top mechanical conditions and we had zero problems as we explored the scottish highlands. It was an excellent trip and the bikes only added to the wonder that we experienced. Raymond was also nice enough to give us a ride to the train station which I see as an added service he did not have to provide, but then again, that is the great scottish helpfulness you hear so often of.. I would highly recommend this business for anyone looking for hassle free, good price for the value and excellent service. Plus he has a awesome dog, Aces in my book!
Great Guy with great bikes. I was with the africa twin in the highlands and the isle of skye. It was just great. A it did rain quite, they gave me an addotional rain jaket, also the topcase and the suitcases where included. I did book and paid the first 50% via paypal, thr rest cash or with card… everythig worked as it should. i do Really recommend thid company…. Enjoy 😉
Raymond is the proprietor and was fantastic to work with for my trip with my wife on the NC500. Bikes were clean and serviced, ready to go when we arrived. We had a bawl of a time in the highlands and when we returned the bikes Raymond gave us a ride back to Inverness. Excellent rates, excellent business, I’ll be a returning customer and recommend to all my UK friends.
Fantastic jumping off point for some of the best riding in the UK. Shop has a great selection of European and Japanese bikes. For my money, you can’t go wrong with a classic Triumph Bonneville in Scottish Blue and White, but if you prefer German Sport Tourers with all the gizmos, you’ll be totally happy. Raymond, the owner, stocks a good selection of gear and has excellent advice the best NC500 roads. You’ll find some of the best riding in the world just 30 minutes from the shop, and on rainy days you’re only an hour from the drier wear coast, so definitely start your trip here instead of Edinburgh.
Book this. Great experience. Great bikes. My Triumph Bonneville was much nicer than I expected and easy to ride. Amazing rides. Some of the best roads I’ve ridden on in the world. Included pick up and drop off at airport and all motorcycle gear. Not pretentious. Great value. I will be book again and recommend you do the same.
What an amazing week! 5 days of motorcycle heaven! I hired the R1, Aprilia RSV4 and the MV Augusta Brutale Roadster RR. What an awesome collection of bikes! I did over 1000 miles in the Scottish Highlands with them and enjoyed every minute! The service and relaxed approach at Highland Motorcycle Hire is fantastic. Thank you so much for the opportunity to do this, I loved it!
Just finished my second trip to the highlands to rent a bike from Raymond – brilliant service and incredible bikes, and great to get a lift from the airport too. Thanks Raymond, highly recommended.
I hired the BMW 1200 GS this is my third year of hiring from Raymond And he couldn’t make it easier! Hire a bike from these guys I guarantee you won’t regret it! An awesome week with a fantastic bike.
We’ve rented two motorcycles: 1200 GS and S1000XR for 5 days. The bikes were perfect for the ride and in perfect conditions, almost brand new. HMH was very helpful and helped us to gear up correctly for a quite rainy ride under the north peninsula’s sky…. Thanks guys, great job!
Just rented the Africa Twin for 3 days, great bike fantastic roads and was lucky with the weather! Raymond was kind enough to drop me off at the airport afterwards and is a genuine bike lover who runs a good little business. His website went offline just before my trip due to a technical error but all went very well and I can’t recommend him enough. He has a great selection of bikes and this trip gave me the opportunity to try something new and different from the ever popular GS…
Just a short note from me to say thanks again for the bike hire at the weekend. It was probably one of the best weekends of my life and the bikes were absolutely amazing. We really appreciate the lift from the airport and back to Inverness and thanks for showing us your other bikes on Sunday too.
A great experience – thank you.
We’ll see you again next year.
Thanks again for a very fine bike hire experience. We hope to come back to Highlands someday.
Nancy and Phil Martin”
“Just a quick email to thank you for a terrific 3 days.
The bikes were superb, the new BMW SX1000 will now be my weapon of choice!
Great customer care and service, everything is, “ney bother “.
“Just wanted to say thank you for such a great service. You are leagues ahead of the competition. The pick up/drop off, the use of rider gear and unlimited mileage and a no messing approach made the whole experience so much easier. Then the bike, well what a bit of kit the GS800 is, quick, handles like a dream and will go anywhere all with unbelievably low fuel consumption. I did 459 miles and it used so little I couldn’t quite believe it.
Anyway thanks again, I will spread the word and I wish you every future success.”
“Had a great time. Hired the Aprillia, Ducati and Yamaha R1 with a mate and all three was like new machines and spotless. Raymond is a very friendly and welcoming guy and he even took us back to Inverness where we stayed saving us a taxi fare. Coupled with the awesome country side and even better roads which are the best I have ever seen it may well be the best motorcycle hire centre in the UK! Thanks Raymond!”
“I rented a bike for 3 days from this outfit. The bike was in perfect condition and ran fine the whole time. Price was reasonable. Ray helped me get suited up and packed my bike for me. It was a fantastic time and I highly recommend them! I will definitely use them again when I go back to Scotland.”
“A mate and I hired three different bikes in three days – the Panigale, the Aprilia RSV and the R1. Firstly, a huge thank you to Raymond for the route tips, the lift in the van back, and for the outstanding bikes themselves. Hiring with his company was easy and it’s in a fantastic location for exploring the North. Would I recommend? Absolutely, and I’ll be going back for another Ducati fix soon! (Dont be hesitant about the 1199, it’s amazingly plush and has lovely low-down torque which makes it great fun on the road :)”
“Trip of a lifetime Raymond. Loved every mile. Thank you from all of us!”
Mr C. Smith
“Recently on my UK trip I hired the Triumph speed triple for a day ride around the highlands. In Australia we have a reputation for being easy going and friendly but Ray is certainly flying the flag for the Scots. It was so easy to organize and nothing was a problem. Anyone going to Scotland thinking about doing a ride, don’t think just do it.”
Mr K. Falconer
“We had a fantastic time last weekend. The bikes were incredible and the weather was gorgeous. Highly recommend your company to others visiting the area!”
Mr J. Smith
“Hi Raymond! Congratulations for the service you give. The Honda CBR 250 R was fun. Everything was in perfect state, new, clean. We had a nice weekend in Isle of Skye. Keep on the good service. If I ever come back to Inverness I’ll contact you again and maybe hire a bigger one!”
Mr O. Bosch
“I really enjoyed the opportunity to ride one of the most amazing bikes I’ve ever been on. The ZX10R really is a SUPER bike! (sorry no pun intended). The service from Raymond was brilliant and I will definitely be back.”
Mr D. Wilson
