Switzerland or Scotland

I am thinking of doing a mountain biking tour next year and have found these two tours:

Coast-to-coast mountain bike tour Scotland - Highlands and Islands Adventures

Mountain Bike Tour of Mont Blanc France Chamonix French Alps France Switzerland Italy

Does any one recommend one over the other or have any other recommendations of good tours around the world? Looking for something relatively challenging and unforgettable.

Thanks!

I've road toured in both areas, and liked both a lot. Your odds of having decent weather are better in the Mont Blanc area than in the highlands of Scotland, but since you're from Seattle, rainy weather might not bother you.
