Join us for a Scoot Aboot on the cutting edge of the future of personal transport and try one of our electrically powered scooters and electric bikes for your ride around Cumbrae.
With no Driver’s Licence or CBT necessary, they are easy to drive, it’s mostly twist-and-go! Ideal for those wanting to see the island in style or those just looking for a quick scoot aboot!
Perfect for enjoying the natural sights and sounds of beautiful Great Cumbrae: our scooters are quiet in operation, allowing you to soak up the sounds and smells of the island without the loud roar of an engine or noxious fumes of an exhaust to be a bother.
At an average of 25kmh these scooters can whisk you round in 45 mins. They allow you to effortlessly tour the island, both along the coast and up the steeper hills to the Glaid stone at the top for some breathtaking views over the Firth of Clyde, with the knowledge that your ride is friendly to the environment emitting zero CO2, doing it’s bit to help the environment and nature which we all enjoy.
To hire one of our scooters, the driver is required to be a responsible individual over 16 years old, be able to cycle a bike confidently and understand the highway code. Under 16 years old can ride as a passenger on the back with a responsible adult driver. Hiring rates are at £10/hour, or £15/hour with a passenger plus £20 deposit upfront. Helmets are available with hires and it is mandatory for minors to wear a helmet.
Increasingly popular, book your scooter now to try out what the worldwide fuss is over! Pre-payments can also be made over the phone for the peace-of-mind of availability and bookings for large groups are paid at the time of booking.
Don’t just take our word for it: see what some of our customers have to say!
“Last week we hired three electric scooters and toured round the Isle of Cumbrae. We had great fun for a couple of hours on the scooters that were very straight forward to drive and perfect for the main road round the island. Excellent customer service and advice from the staff. Very reasonable price too!” – David Z
“Saw the bright shiny red mopeds as soon as we got to the quay in Millport and they were just begging to be taken out for a spin. The four of us (who are not as young as we once were) had the time of our lives riding around the island, exploring beaches and stopping to admire the views. Would thoroughly recommend it.” – Clare M
