Driving through the Highlands

 

Scotland is packed with scenic driving routes, and the National Tourist Routes are a great place to start. Try the Highland Route, which winds for 118 miles (189km) through the heart of the Highlands between Aberdeen, the Granite City on the east coast, and Inverness, capital of the Highlands. On the way, you’ll tour through the Cairngorm National Park and, if you choose, stop off at the Grampian Transport Museum, Glenlivet Distillery, Cawdor Castle and Culloden Battlefield. You could also try the Moray Firth Route, which covers the northeast Highlands, taking in magnificent firth views and leaping salmon along the way.
