Starting in the English Border town of Berwick-Upon-Tweed (accessible by Train or an easy drive from Edinburgh or Newcastle Airports), this route meanders through the open wilderness of Southern Scotland to the Northern outskirts of the Capital City, Edinburgh. From there it traverses the country via Stirling to the extraordinary Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, and on to the breathtaking West Coast. Follow the rugged coastline north to the Gateway of the Highlands, Fort William, to end your journey at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain.
This route is characterised by Scotland’s rich motoring – and motorsport – heritage. 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. 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. Aside from world-class cuisine, award-winning visitor attractions, and spectacular views, watch out for the legendary Hill Climb roads which you might even be able to drive on yourself.
Whether you choose to continue your adventure, beyond Ft William, or return to Glasgow or Edinburgh to depart, you’ll be in for a bonus surprise as almost any route you take to get home will be equally breathtaking.
