Cycling with kids

Hi! We are planning to visit Scotland for the fifth time in a couple of years (best place in the whole wide world!) but this time we have two kids with us. We would love to cycle around Scotland, but when we look at hiring bikes most places only let you rent a bike for 72 hours. Anyone who knows if it's possible to hire a bike for up to a week? And if it's possible to rent a bicycle trailer for the kids? I would be so sad if it's not possible, since we really want our kids to experience this trip with us. I'd appreciate any advice :-)

    Hi @PollyMika
    If you are planning to start from Edinburgh, I called Leith Cycle Co - they can do a week's hire at a cost of £85 per bike plus £6 a day for a kids trailer. I hope this helps. Have a great time when you come!
