Scenic drives suggestions for touring around Scotland.

Driving in Scotland, especially heading to the remote parts, can be a pure joy.

Visit Scotland have started another list of the best drives in Scotland on their blog although I think they need to make better use of some of the better photography available to them.

They have gone for the following but this time with our pictures:

1.  Rest and Be Thankful pass on the A83 – we don’t have one yet – any donors?

2. Traigh Sheileboist at Seilebost

Veiw across the beach towards a high hill in the distance.

3. Glencoe to Fort William

One day I hope to produce the definitive list of must drive roads in Scotland. We have a couple of previous posts on it.

    You beat me to it – this is a post I’m planning to do at some point soon ! I agree the Visit Scotland list is a little limited. I’ll have to put my thinking cap on some more but I would also offer up the A849 from Craignure to Ffionphort on Mull, Callander to Aberfoyle via the Duke’s Pass, the Pitlochry-Aberfeldy-Tummel Bridge circuit – plus some great little B roads on Skye and the Borders.
