Advice Wanted From Scottish Members

Recommended Posts

Hi guys North of the border I'm hoping you can give me some advice.

Me and my son are planning a driving trip to your wonderful country this June or July. We will have 4 maybe 5 days. We want to drive some spectacular routes in the mountains and visit john o'groats at some point.

I've already pencilled in Applecross pass but if you have any other suggestions I'd be really grateful to hear them.

Also any where we should avoid?

Cheers guys.

Up past loch lomond is nice massive loch and anywhere near Ben Nevis oh and can't forget lovely Stirling castle can't get more scottish looking than that just but avoid the A9 if possible as there hundreds of average speed cameras -_- noticed that today as I'm in Dundee today

Route planning pretty much complete now. Basic route is up to fort William then up the west coast to Ullapool past ardvreck castle to Durness across to john ogroats and wick. Down to Inverness through the Cairngorms to Pitlochry. Then via Stirling and home.

Should be something like 1300 miles in 5 days. Can't wait for June now.

Phil I'd be interested to hear how the trip goes, I'm spending a week in the Highlands back end of July - sadly the A9 is a necessary even for me unless I want to add hours onto an already very long drive. 😕

When I get on the laptop again I'll post the full route up.

I will also write a review and post some pictures up when I get back.
