Begin in the Borders town of Berwick-Upon-Tweed, just inside the North East of England, and wind your way through the vast open wilderness of Southern Scotland to the outskirts of the Capital City, Edinburgh. From there, cross the country, via Stirling Castle, to the extraordinary Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, and on to the breathtaking West Coast. Follow the rugged coastline north to Fort William, gateway to the Highlands, to end your journey at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain.
The engaging roads that you’ll travel on this route go some way to explaining why the calibre of driver from this region is so high. The country is the birth place of world champion and race winning drivers, including Jim Clark and Jackie Stewart, Colin McRae and Chris Hoy, David Coulthard and Dario Franchitti. Along this route you’ll find some of the historic roads used in “hill-climb” races, one of the earliest forms of motorsport in the UK. But off the road you’ll find world-class cuisine, award-winning visitor attractions, and spectacular views at almost every turn.
Whether you choose to continue your adventure into the Highlands beyond Ft William, or return to Glasgow or Edinburgh for a departure flight, you’ll be in for a bonus surprise as almost any route you take to get home will be equally breathtaking.
