Description

Admire the creativity and skill of the glassblowers at work in Lindean Mill Glass. This innovative glass studio was established in 1978 by David Kaplan and Annica Sandström, whose work has been exhibited at the National Museum Scotland in Edinburgh and the V&A in London. Catch an amazing sunset from Neist Point, where there is also a lighthouse of the same name. The most westerly point on Skye, this beautiful spot also affords fantastic views of the Outer Hebrides. Over millennia, Scotland has made its mark on history thanks to famous figures ranging from the ancient Celts and the Roman Empire to King Robert the Bruce and Mary Queen of Scots, via Bonnie Prince Charlie, Rob Roy MacGregor, Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott, and Queen Victoria, all of whom have connections to the heart of Scotland. Visit the truly brilliant Museum of Scottish Lighthousesat Fraserburgh, where you can tour Kinnaird Head Lighthouse, the very first lighthouse built on mainland Scotland in 1787. The Highland Tourist Route is one of the few road trips in Europe that is as much about the destination as the drive, Scotland’s very own Route 66. If you don’t have much time, it is possible to do the NC500 in seven days, but there wouldn’t be much opportunity to stop and explore the deep and closely held history and raw nature of this visceral place.

Visiting the glorious beaches of the peninsula is a real treat. Unspoiled and often with no one else around, some of the best beaches in Scotland can be found here. Our favorites are Carradale Bay and close-by Torrisdale Bay.Time to plan – half a day if not spending much time at the beaches to a day to explore more in depth each stop

Try a spot of wild swimming (we would advise a wet suit!) in the bracing Fairy Pools, beautiful crystal clear pools, and waterfalls at the foot of the Cuillin mountains, on the river Brittle. Take the 1.5 mile walk from the small parking lot to find this series of magical pools, formed 50-70 million years ago!

Visit Lady Victoria Colliery, one of the best and last surviving Victorian collieries in Europe, and now the National Mining Museum of Scotland. Explore the machinery used to mine and take coal to the surface, imagine what a miner’s life was like, and experience the sights and sounds of a working pit on a fantastic tour of the pit head. Spend some time in the Lochaber area, dominated by Ben Nevis and known as the outdoor capital of the UK. Activity lovers will be in their element here; you can mountain bike, hike, climb, abseil and enjoy all manner of water sports on the loch.

Plan trips to Scotlandduring the colder months for winter sporting opportunities, dramatic scenery, and the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights, or ‘Mirrie Dancers’ as they are sometimes called in Scotland. Location:A96 (Jct Regent Court to Jct A95 Craigellachie) to A95 (A9 Granish to B9152 Granish), Southbound Admire the dramatic clifftop Culzean Castle, designed by Robert Adam in the late 18th century and full of treasures, opulence, and history.Enjoy fresh seafood at some of the best restaurants in Scotland along this route. Of particular note, the original Loch Fyne Oysters Ltd have been selling fresh oysters at the roadside since 1978 and you can now enjoy them in the bar or to take away from their delicatessen. My favorite part of the loop is the drive through Wester Ross with Loch Maree and beautiful coastal sceneries. The route A mecca for thrill-seekers, the white water rapids on the River Tay at Grandtully offer opportunities for kayaking, rafting, and canyoning, with lots of local companies providing access and equipment, whatever your level of skill or knowledge. Location:M80 (M80 Dbfo B'Dary to Start 3-Lane) to M80 (N.Lanarkshire C.Boundary to South Extent Sb M80 Dbfo), Southbound The Ordnance Survey, officially founded in the 1790s, focused on mapping southern England and then Ireland first, before mapping Scotland comprehensively from the 1840s.

Time to plan – Half a day if simply stopping for the views or a day if you are visiting Balmoral Castle and / or Braemar Castle In this article, rather than listing the long touristic circuits created by VisitScotland, I have decided to focus on the most scenic portions of roads I have enjoyed. Driving in Scotland The 10 best drives in Scotland – Map & List Prominent buildings such as churches, windmills, towers, or chimneys, as well as the overall size and shape of settlements, were useful for navigation, and often shown on charts.If you have just one week in Scotland, the North East 250 is the perfect 7 day self-drive tour of Scotland for lovers of coastlines, mountains, and whisky. Stop at Killin, a small village at the southern point of Loch Tay. Famous for the Falls of Dochart, a spectacular series of rapids where the River Dochart rushes towards the Loch at the confluence of the rivers Dochart and Lochay, the best view is from the Bridge of Dochart in the village. This is also a great place to base yourself for local hiking. You can drive to Skye from Inverness in around two and a half hours. From Glasgow, it will take five to six hours. Just getting to Skye is an incredible trip in its own right, maximise your time by flying into Inverness and out of Glasgow (or vice versa).
