Glen Quaich Road

Glen Quaich Road

Located in Perth and Kinross, Scotland, the Glen Quaich is one of the most picturesque roads in the country. The drive is definitely worth it. A drive not to be missed! There are many excellent photo opportunities. Glen Quaich is simply one of the most stunning drives in Scotland.

The road is asphalted. It’s 10.8 miles long and links Amulree, through Glen Quaich, down to Kenmore. This infamous road is tightly hairpinned and bumped, an exquisite winding mountain drive with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks leading the traveler over the mountains. The road includes some steep sections, without market central lines, is very narrow, barely wide enough for 2 cars at the same time and it has not protections or guardrails. The surface of the road is asphalt, and chains or snow tyres can be required anytime.

This drive is not for the faint hearted. Its highest point is at 522 m above the sea level. It’s a two way road with traffic able to travel in both directions. It’s not advised taking a large RV on this narrow road, as there are very few passing places. This road offers keen drivers a chance to experience a few minutes of drive on steeply winding roads, and passengers to absorb breathtaking scenery.
