The best routes for a 14-day road trip in Scotland

For most visitors, the classic Scotland route begins in Edinburgh, the capital city, and continues up the beautiful east coast to Aberdeenshire, through the Scottish Highlands and to either the famous Isle of Skye or the Isle of Mull before reversing course. On such route you can experience numerous major attractions such as the city of Inverness, Loch Ness, the picturesque valley of Glen Coe, Eilean Donan Castle, Trossachs National Park, the Glenfinnan Viaduct (the “Harry Potter Bridge”) and some film locations from the popular Outlander TV series, such as Doune Castle.

Although this classic route can be done in 10 days, a 14-day driving tour of Scotland is ideal for travellers who want more free time to hike, take photos and generally relax the pace a bit. Plus, with two nights of accommodation at most overnights destinations, instead of just one night, a 2-week trip is also the best choice for travellers who have a keen interest in Scottish culture, cuisine or whisky.

Another popular idea for a 14-day road trip in Scotland is to expand your route to include the islands of Harris and Lewis in the Outer Hebrides as well as the Orkney Islands up north. 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. This also gives you the chance to drive the popular, scenic North Coast 500 route, considered by some to be “Scotland’s Route 66”.  

What’s included in a 14-day driving tour of Scotland

Nordic Visitor’s self-drive tour packages include a rental car of your choice and everything else you need for the best Scotland driving experience. Take comfort in the fact that all accommodations on your 14-day road trip in Scotland have been pre-arranged by your dedicated Nordic Visitor travel consultant in Edinburgh. And know exactly where you’re driving each day — and which optional attractions you can visit — with a personalised itinerary and Scotland travel guide booklet. We’ll also provide you with a hand-marked map of Scotland, a GPS navigation system and our own 24/7 helpline.

Absolutely love working with Nordic Visitor!

I have already traveled twice with Nordic Visitor, and am already in the process of booking a third trip! Absolutely love working with you! Every bed and breakfast we stayed at was amazing. The hosts were so welcoming with great suggestions of things to do and places to eat. The rooms were very comfortable, and the amenities were awesome! 

Paul, United Kingdom

Scottish Highlands & Isle of Skye, September 2020

The best holidays we have ever had!

Superb!! Our first ever 'touring' holiday and right up there with the best holidays we have ever had. We are not youngsters, so this was taken on with a bit of trepidation, but were soon put at ease by the sheer quality of accommodation provided along with the superb travel itinerary book (yes, it's that thick and detailed) and map. Even though we often used local recommendations, these became our trusted companions throughout the week - and are now valued reminders of an exceptional holiday - Thankyou Nordic Visitor, we will be back!

Crystal, United States

Classic Scotland & The Orkney islands, September 2019

Wonderful experience!

Thank you so much! Our experience in Scotland was wonderful! We felt prepared for what to expect, particularly as it relates to making dinner reservations on the islands we visited. The food recommendations were excellent , the accommodations were cozy, and the recommendations for sites and attractions greatly appreciated. A special thank you to Agne who answered all my inquiries, helped us make dinner reservations and confirmed all our dates and meeting times - she was a pleasure to work with!  

David, United Kingdom

Classic Scotland, September 2020

Excellent trip

All accommodations were excellent with very friendly hosts. Car rental pickup was very quick and easy and car was excellent. Rebecca was excellent, she took all our requirements and made a personal tour for us. Her attention to detail was excellent.The documents at our first hotel were excellent especially the map with everything marked on for us.

Scottish Highlands & Isle of Skye, June 2019

A positive experience, beginning to end!

This tour was a positive experience for us, beginning to end. The planning by Nordic Visitor was complete, thoughtful, and worked flawlessly. Scotland was stunning and most interesting - we just wish we had more time. To Nordic Visitor: Great Job! We'll be back!

Gary, Canada

Scotland Winter World, November 2019

The accommodations, destinations and car were great!

The tour went very well. All the accommodation was excellent. We are very pleased with all the arrangements and communications that we had with Rebecca. The accommodations, destinations and car were great. Our only wish is that we would have had more time at some of the locations. We had a hard time packing it all in!

Jennifer

Express Scotland, July 2019

Nothing but great words to say about Nordic Visitor!

We were thrilled with all of our accommodations. All hosts/hostesses were very friendly and we felt very welcomed. The rental car service was also very good and thorough. And we felt as though everyone had a good working relationship as the businesses had nothing but great words to say about Nordic Visitor so we felt good that everyone was working together to make our visit a great one!
