Go on an incredible 12-day Scotland road trip
On a 12-day self-drive tour of Scotland it’s easy to experience many of the country’s most famous sights and scenic routes. Starting from Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city, the most popular Scotland itineraries for 12 days usually include a trip up the beautiful east coast to Aberdeenshire, a journey through the rugged Scottish Highlands and some time to explore the main attractions on the Isle of Skye.
Here are just a few of the highlights of such a route:
In addition to this classic route through the Highlands, on a 12-day Scotland tour you can also spend a night either in the Outer Hebrides, on the isles of Harris and Lewis, or up north in the Orkney Islands. Both island groups offer a vast array of highlights, from the stunning sandy beaches and traditional handicrafts of Harris to the mysterious neolithic ruins that dot Orkney. Plus, if you opt for the Orkney detour, you can also drive along the popular and very scenic North Coast 500 route, which is considered by some to be “Scotland’s Route 66”.
