Road Trips in Scotland - Some Travel Tips for Visitors
Scotland is a land of misty highland glens, soaring rocky mountains, and islands carved from granite on a wild, untamed sea. It's a place of fantastic whiskey, gourmet eateries, romantic ruins, and wonderful wildlife without overpowering urban sprawl.
In short, driving around Scotland is a delight. There's so much to see, and the country is small enough to make road trips a very practical vacation option. So here are three options that visitors will want to consider.
The Mull of Kintyre -
Famously the subject of a Paul McCartney song, the Mull of Kintyre offers breathtaking views along its 40 mile length. Start at Loch Lomond, and head south via Tarbert, to the distilleries of Campbelltown, and some of Scotland's finest seafood restaurants.
The Isle of Skye
- Driving a circuit of this stunning island is an inspiring experience. Start at Kyleakin, past the jagged majesty of the Cuillin Hills, stopping at the the Talisker distillery, Dunvegan Castle, the magical Fairy Glen of Uig, and the clifftop Mealt Waterfall, before heading for home.
Glasgow to Glencoe
- Following the A82 through Glencoe is a feast for the eyes, featuring some of the Highlands' most scenic valleys and mountains. And the route from Glasgow is sublime, passing the Trossachs and Loch Lomond, opportunities for photos and fine food at the Bridge of Orchy
