Dornoch Bike Hire


Great service thank you
Thank you so much Dave for leaping into action with 5 minutes to spare when I hired my bike last week ! It meant I could get 15 miles ahead on my trip to John O Groats along the A9 - on a good bike, with hi vis and above all - a comfy saddle !!

For a great day out or just an afternoon sightseeing or a leisurely trek around town, we have a grea

Operating as usual


We have a bike in our possession handed in to us by a member of the public that was found abandoned in the town. If you think it may be yours just get in touch with us and describe the cycle (make, size, colour, any distinguishing marks, frame number etc). We believe that this bike may have been stolen from somewhere locally (garden shed, garden, garage, outside someone's home etc). Tel: 07939 139139.

As well as bike hire we also offer servicing, repairs, sales & accessories. We have a number of second-hand bicycles for sale, both for adults and children, and electric bikes for sale for those looking to become more eco-friendly permanent pedal-ers! All our sales stock bicycles come with a 2month warranty at the price listed. Hagglers are welcome but no warranty is given on an agreed discount price on any second-hand bikes. Give us a call or pop into the lodge when you see us open where you will likely meet Dave, Zoe, or Austin who will be pleased to help you and discuss your inquiry with you. Tel: 07939 139139. Dave.
All of our second-hand bikes are tested and fully serviced before being sold, ensuring that they meet our high standards and are suitable for resale, so you can trust that our bicycles are fully road worthy.
We have a variety of Men's, Ladies and Children’s bikes available and all can be viewed at the Lodge or in our nearby storage unit, so why not visit us soon?.

Here are a few pics of our New Carrera Vulcan taken on its 1st outing along the Camore Woods pathway by Loch-An-Treel known locally as the Curling Pond. I really enjoyed taking it on its Maiden Voyage, it performed well and was a pleasure to ride. This bike with its 27.5" wheels features a 2 x 9 speed Shimano Altus drivetrain with the same Clarks Clout hydraulic disc brakes as the Hellcat. Upfront there is slightly more travel with a 120mm Suntour XCM fork fitted which also has a lockout. This one is a 20" frame dude so good for the bigger boys, 5'10" - 6'2" and it's sweet. To hire it out for the day/s or a week just get in touch.

Proof of name and address in the form of a driving licence or passport along with a utility bill will be asked for if we don't already know you personally.

Frame: Lightweight 6061 Alloy frame, perfect for commuting
Forks: Rigid steel fork for controlled steering

Don't fancy the hassle of buying a new bike or taking a chance on a second hand one, why don't you lease one for a month or two from Dornoch Bike Hire. You don't need to worry about servicing as they all come fully serviced and checked. JUST REMEMBER! (most second-hand bikes on the market have never seen a service or been checked over since leaving the retailer). No need to wonder where you're going to keep it over the winter. We can offer you a short or longer-term lease starting from as little as £10.00 per week (that = £1.43 per day, LESS than the price of a COSTA Coffee).. Adults, Teenagers & Kids bikes + helmets & Hi-Viz available. Delivery service offered at a small cost. (Terms & Conditions apply to all leasing arrangements). Just drop us a message through this FB page.


The Frog 52 Spotty. This Kids Bike is a perfect bike for any young aspiring rider. With child-sized Tektro brakes that have adjustable levers ensures any size of hand can get full use. The bike also includes a high-quality lightweight frame and forks meaning the bike is sturdy enough for any challenges your child can throw at it. The Frog 52 also has an 8-speed Shimano twist grip and easily adjusted saddle height meaning the rider is in full control when behind the handlebars. Also included are a bell, reflectors, and rear mudguard as standard. All these features result in Frog 52 being an ideal choice for any child in the age range of between 5-6 years. The bike is pre-owned but is in very good condition and has been fully serviced and ready to go.

This bike is available to lease over 4wks, 8wks, 12wks, 16wks 20wks or 26wks helmet included. Option to buy on this model is not available.

We have had a great interest and uptake to our leasing a bike idea so now we have turned the idea into reality. We can offer a great range of MTBs, Hybrids, and kids bikes to lease at a fraction of the cost of normal weekly hire. In the present COVID-19 situation this is a great time to consider leasing a bike for a short period of time or longer if you prefer. We can offer 4week - 8week - 12week - 16week lease options. If you fancy it just get in touch and we can get you all set up with a fully serviced bike that will suit your needs over the summer months (Terms & Conditions apply in all leasing agreements). We also offer a delivery and collection service, we can also check over and fully service your own bike by a fully qualified bike mechanic. Just get in touch via this FB page.


DBH is planning to turn to leasing out some of their hire bikes, as daily and weekly hires are impossible to implement under the present COVID-19 situation and the risks involved with such is too high for public safety measures to be adhered to and sadly we do not want to be encouraging tourists into our local area at this present moment in time until it is safe to do so. However, we are thinking through a strategy for leasing out the hire fleet whereby it would work out at a fraction of the normal cost of daily or weekly hire. At this time when people want to get out and exercise and are considering cycling as a preferred choice of how to do this but don’t want to go out and purchase a new bike perhaps leasing a bike for a short period of time would suit some folk (4 weeks, 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 16 weeks). If anyone out there is interested in leasing one of our bikes please just get in touch through this FB page.


Hi All, Just a wee update from DBH to keep you informed of what's happening. As no bike hires at the moment due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but I have, at last, nearly finished the workshop for general servicing and repairs of our hire fleet. Not quite finished yet but couldn't wait to get the first bike up on the workbench for check over. I will do some general light servicing for folk outwith the bike hire, (Brakes/gears/puncture repairs/check over, etc) but not any bigger jobs please (hubs/gear cassette replacement, etc) as don't have the time and got enough on with keeping the hire bikes up to scratch and also working full-time elsewhere. I'll be keeping a small stock of tyres & tubes in the most popular sizes but will order in if your size is not in stock. Take Care & Stay Safe.


Due to the recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Dornoch Bike Hire will NOT be trading until further notice.
Please stay safe and we hope that you all come through this period of uncertainty with good health. We will make a further announcement at a later date when we are going to resume trading.

Hi Folks, getting towards Bike Hire season again so decided to take a wee jaunt out since weather was favorable. I took out the Oregon Reebok to blow the cobwebs away after sitting in the garage all winter. It's a good older Skool 21sp Hardtail MTB and functions very well in MTB Terrain. I went up Tinkers Woods near Dornoch (a place well worth exploring if you're looking for something away from the Tarmac Road routes). It's Forestry commission owned land and hopefully I can persuade FC to expand and improve a nice little potential MTB Trail I found adjacent to the gravel track road. Took some pics of my outing to let you see where I was and just pm me if you want directions on how to get there. There will be a bigger focus on cycling around Dornoch and the surrounding areas this year. I won't reveal too much at the moment but keep an eye on Dornoch Bike Hires FB page for updates and announcements shortly. Hope you enjoy the pics


Polisport Childs Bike Seat fitted to Carrera Crossfire 2, can also be fitted with panier rack attached.


Just a wee update and due to popular demand (asked about 5 or 6 times now) we have a childs seat for attaching to a bike. We've got the Polisport Groovy rs plus, this is a reclining one. It's mounted to the frame of the bike with a quick release system. It had its maiden voyage tonight and the customer was very pleased with it. Easy to fit and easy to use (once I worked out how to put it together). Suitable for kiddies from 9 months to 5 years. This seat offers plenty protection for its VIP passengers. With an armrest shaped for extra comfort and adjustable footrests offering 4 positions. There is also the ability to move the seat back and forth with 4 different settings available. The seat has been designed to allow for helmet use, the Groovy RS Plus can be reclined, but only after unlocking by an adult.
Additional Info: The child seat is EN14344 approved, with an adjustable 3 point safety harness.


That's the Hols over, (all 4 days of them) which were great, but then the car broke down on way home, so had to hire a car in Inverness as AA couldn't get us home tonight despite having full GOLD Relay cover (that's the the all bells, buzzers and flashing lights version), car still in Inverness at some holding depot. Hey ho that's just how things go in our family. Never mind, bike hire is up and running again from tomorrow Tues 30 July, should have taken some bikes with us on holiday, at least we would have managed to get home without having to fork out on car hire. I hope we can offer you a better service on bike hire than the AA can on their GOLD RELAY vehicle and occupants recovery service.


Dornoch Bike Hire is away from Fri 26 July and back for Tues 30 July so no bike hire available for this period unless prior arrangement has been made and pre-booked beforehand. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


Latest addition to the DBH fleet. This GIANT Roam X-Road offers a great blend of on-road/off-road performance. Perfect for a mixture of terrains with its 27speed gears, offering great ability with comfort and agility. Hire this bike for £25.00 per day or £22.50 per day for 2 days (that's a 10% discount). Helmet, combination lock and Hi-viz included in hire. This bike is currently displayed at the entrance to the Carnegie Court House. Just pick up a leaflet for full contact details at the Visitor Centre or Tel: 07939 139139 - Find us on facebook - email: [email protected]


Camore Woods Map taken from the information board at the car park. Great for a wee MTB ride and exploring the areas past with its abundance of hut circles (some 25 in total). Mountain Bikers always be aware that there are other users of this popular walk so always be on the lookout for walkers, kiddies, doggies & horses. Cycle safely and always wear a safety helmet, you only get one head. Call Dornoch Bike Hire on: 07939 139139


Bike ride on new path going down past Loch-An-Treel, Camore Woods. Well worth a walk or bike ride. Well done to the Forestry Commission for opening up this old path and making such a fantastic job of it. Sorry the Gopro was a bit shakey on this outing but just quickly attached to the bikes handle bars, next time we'll do a proper helmet cam.
