Where to go on a 16-day road trip in Scotland
Most 16-day tours in Scotland begin with a day in Edinburgh, where you can explore such landmarks as the Edinburgh Castle and the cobbled streets of The Royal Mile. From the capital city, the most common route continues up the beautiful east coast to Aberdeenshire, through the Scottish Highlands and to the famous Isle of Skye. On such a route you can experience major attractions such as the city of St Andrews, the shores of Loch Ness, the picturesque valley of Glen Coe, Eilean Donan Castle, Cairngorms National Park, Loch Lomond, the Glenfinnan Viaduct, Dunvegan Castle and attractions near Fort William.
Another popular idea for a 16-day road trip in Scotland is to expand your route to include the secluded, pristine islands of Harris and Lewis in the Outer Hebrides as well as the Orkney Islands up north. You could also drive the scenic North Coast 500 route, considered by some to be “Scotland’s Route 66”. A 16-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, as well as experience more Scottish culture, cuisine and whisky.
