Driving in Scotland with a Hire Car offers travellers the opportunity to explore diverse landscapes, from scenic countryside to rugged mountains and coastal areas. Here are some key points to know about driving in Scotland:
Tips for Driving in Scotland:
1. Roads and Terrain:
Scotland's road network includes a mix of motorways, A-roads, B-roads, and rural routes. Motorways and major roads are generally well-maintained, while rural roads can be narrower and winding. The terrain varies across Scotland, with lowlands, highlands, and islands. Driving conditions may be different in each area, so it's essential to be prepared for changing landscapes and weather.
2. Type of Vehicle:
The type of vehicle you choose depends on your travel plans. For city driving and standard roads, a compact or mid-size car is sufficient. If you plan to explore remote areas, such as the Scottish Highlands, consider a larger vehicle or a four-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicle for added stability and off-road capabilities.
3. Airports in Scotland:
Scotland has several international airports, including Edinburgh Airport (EDI
), Glasgow Airport (GLA
), Aberdeen International Airport (ABZ
), Inverness Airport (INV
), and others. These airports serve as entry points for travelers flying into Scotland.
4. Road Signs:
Road signs in Scotland are clear and follow international standards. Signs are typically in English, but you may also see bilingual signs in English and Scottish Gaelic, especially in the Highlands and some island regions. Distances are typically displayed in miles, and speed limits are in miles per hour (mph).
5. Weather Conditions:
Scotland's weather can be changeable, so it's crucial to be prepared for varying conditions, including rain, fog, and snow in the winter months. Check weather forecasts and road conditions before traveling, especially in remote areas.
6. Scenic Routes:
Scotland offers numerous scenic routes and drives, such as the North Coast 500, which takes you through some of the country's most beautiful landscapes. These routes provide an excellent opportunity to explore Scotland's natural beauty.
8. Wildlife Caution:
When driving in rural areas, particularly in the Highlands, be cautious of wildlife crossing the road, such as deer. Wildlife can be active, especially during dawn and dusk.
