the world's most spectacular roads



A82 is a very scenic road located in Scotland. It’s 167 mi (269 km) long and runs from Glasgow to Fort William and Inverness, passing along the shores of Loch Lomond and Loch Ness and the shadow of Ben Nevis along the way.

The drive is definitely worth it. Don’t forget your camera! In Glencoe, the road brings you breathtaking scenic spaces and wonderful sights like the Rannoch Moor Bridge. Everything from overgrown grass on rocks to historical bridges is worth a gander.
The road's winding design, providing stunning panoramic views, is very curvy and fun for a leisurely ride. It has been frequently regarded as one of the most dangerous roads in Scotland. The section of A82 between Tarbet and Ardlui is narrow (embarrassingly narrow for a major route - there are some corners where two trucks struggle to pass each other) and can be very slow.
This road is very exciting and sometimes very exposed and unsecured driveway in innumerable twists and turns. This scenic road is shown in Bond’s Skyfall film: a driving clip where the Aston is on a two lane road, between Bridge of Orchy and the Kings House Hotel. The bits where Bond and M are standing by the parked Aston, on a single track road, are in Glen Etive. The only road in/out is the single track road that leaves the A82 near the Kings House Hotel.
The A82 shows the gorgeous countryside and scenic areas. It’s a popular route for tourists due to its extensive scenery, and it serves as the main artery for commercial and heavy goods traffic through the area. See mountains soar up around you as you drive through Glencoe, a region of Scotland famed the world over for its spectacular landscapes. Fertile valleys, dizzying peaks and clear mountain rivers together give this landscape an almost mythological feel, and on the A82 from central Scotland, you can take it all in as you drive by.
