Here is a selection of quick planners to assist you.
If you are travelling from England and entering the south of Scotland, there are a number of entry points. The main ones on the west of the UK are the M6, M/A74, M/A8 taking you to Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Alternatively the east coast offers the A1 travelling through Northumberland past Holy Island and through Berwick-upon-Tweed.
Glasgow and Edinburgh are separated by the M8 - no more than an hour's journey between the two cities. From Glasgow, the A/M80 joins the A9 for Perth and leads you up through the towns of Stirling, Perth, Pitlochry, Aviemore and on to Inverness. Travelling west from Glasgow takes you towards Dunbarton, past Loch Lomond and on your way to Oban. The west coast road meanders along the beautiful coast of Scotland showing off the islands and provides access to them.
To reach Aberdeen from Edinburgh, you can take the fast A/M90 route toward Perth and then via Dundee to the Grampian area. Or the scenic A93 route north of Perth via Glenshee to Royal Deeside, and past Balmoral Castle.
There is so much to see, do and enjoy throughout beautiful Scotland, even in the unlikely event of inclement weather !
