Glen Quaich Road

Glen Quaich, a Scottish dangerous drive in winters

Located in Perth and Kinross, Scotland, the Glen Quaich is one of the most picturesque, and dangerous, roads in the country. The drive is definitely worth it. Glen Quaich is simply one of the most stunning drives in Scotland. It's one of the highest roads of the country.

The road is paved. It’s 17.38km (10.8 miles) long and links Amulree, through Glen Quaich, down to Kenmore. It’s a difficult road, with uncountable turns and twists. The road is narrow, winding, and features several blind curves and summits. There are few passing places. It’s not advised taking a large RV on this narrow road, as there are very few passing places.

Perils of winter can force the closure of the road

This drive is not for the faint hearted. Its highest point is at 522m (1,712ft) above the sea level. It’s a two way road with traffic able to travel in both directions. This road offers keen drivers a chance to experience a few minutes of drive on steeply winding roads, and passengers to absorb breathtaking scenery. The road is very treacherous in winters and can pose a danger to the public in the winter conditions. It can become especially risky when temperatures drop.
