Our knowledgeable and experienced team at John Clark BMW has put together their top 5 places to drive your BMW in Scotland. These roads have been chosen for their scenery, their road layout and their ability to truly test vehicles.
Scotland’s answer to Route 66, the Applecross route in Wester Ross twists and turns through spectacular mountain scenery and was named one of the best places for a road trip by National Geographic. Perfect for testing how your car handles on these epic bends…
If you want to put in the miles, then how about a 500-mile round-trip starting and finishing in Inverness? This route starts at Inverness and travels across the west Highlands to Applecross and then up the coast to Ullapool. It then winds its way up to Durness and over to Caithness and John O’Groats, before joining the A9 from Wick and heading back south to the Highland capital.
The A93 between Blairgowrie and Braemar is a favourite amongst the biker set due to its twisty climb up to the pass of Glenshee and the quick descent down the other side. The route deserves to be taken at a slower pace, particularly for the section west along Royal Deeside.
Drive across the landmark Forth Road Bridge and into the heart of Fife. The east coast road will ensure breath-taking views, taking in the village of Anstruther before arriving at the home of golf in St Andrews.
If time is on your side then a trip from Glenelg to Skye via the Glenachulish, the only manually operated turntable ferry in Scotland, is a must. Offering spectacular views, this may not be as quick as the road bridge but is certainly worth the wait! A ten-mile narrow road winds down to Glenelg and then across the Kylerhea straits, which split Skye from the Scottish mainland.
Happy motoring and enjoy all that Scotland’s roads has to offer. As always please watch your speed and drive with due care, especially when navigating new, unfamiliar routes.
