Scotland's best scenic drives

The best beautiful driving routes in Scotland, including the A82 to Glencoe and the Pass of the Cattle.

A82 towards Glencoe

This can get busy in peak season but you won’t find more dramatic views from the driver’s seat than this.


Bealach na Bà (Pass of the Cattle), Ross and Cromarty

A 1-in-3 ascent with hairpins and narrow single-track sections. The reward on the other side is the Applecross Peninsula.


A9 from Stirling to Inverness

"The most beautiful A-road in the world", according to Telegraph Travel's Head of Print, Ben Ross.


A87, A863 and A850 around Skye

Take detours to visit Dunvegan Castle and Talisker distillery.


Inverness to Nairn circular

This splendid two-day drive takes in the coast alongside Lossiemouth before heading inland past distilleries and castles, as well as heading into the Cairngorms National Park. Look out for the picturesque DulsieBridge off the A939 on the return trip to Nairn.
