Welcome to the Crieff Cloverleaf.

Four days of glorious motorcycle touring

Soaring through the northern alpine Cairngorms and the southern rolling hills of the Borders, curving around dramatic West Coast mountain lochs and East Coast ocean vistas, the Crieff Cloverleaf brings you plenty of the best of Scotland’s biking in every direction.

From sweeping progressive A roads to winding country byways and adventurous single-tracks, the Crieff Cloverleaf has something to thrill every motorcycle rider. It takes in some of Scotland’s most-loved biker roads, and some of our hidden gems too.
