Scotland – a land full of history, culture, legends, and monsters. Perfect for groups of friends who like different things, as wherever you go, you’ll find activities that everyone will enjoy! With its wide range of stunning scenery, welcoming locals, quirky food and fun activities, a Scottish road trip will not disappoint.
You’ll start your trip in Loch Lomond – either rest up from the long drive or head out to explore the many lochs in this national park, walks and even water sports if that’s your thing! When you’re done, head on up to the Isle of Skye. The largest island of the Inner Hebrides is a truly magical place. With its rugged coastline, beautiful mountains, narrow lochs and fascinating legends, this island can’t be missed. Enjoy incredible seafood, delicious whisky and harbourside shopping if you prefer to relax or, grab your camera and head for the hills for some outdoorsy fun!
Next you’ll head back down on the beautiful drive to Fort William; a town close by the legendary Ben Nevis. The obvious activity here would be to hike up the mountain and enjoy the stunning view from the top, but if you don’t enjoy walking much, you can also spend the day admiring the area from your car or a bicycle.
End your trip with a relaxing night in the Lake District as a well earned reward for all the miles on the road this week. If you’ll still got energy in the tank, then don’t worry as there’s plenty for you to do here too.

The famous Loch Lomond – what better base to start your Scottish Roadtrip? Rest up here and take a leisurely stroll along the loch’s shores or try your hand at some watersports on the loch instead. There’s plenty to do here and if time allows, the Ben A’an hike is worth a go for the more energetic of you. Bear in mind though you’ve another long drive up to Skye from here.
The Isle of Skye is full of hidden gems to explore. To the West of the Island at the foot of Black Cuillin is the River Brittle. Lined with waterfalls and natural archways it is home to the ‘fairy pools’ of Glen Brittle, perfect for wild swimming. To the North of the Island is the most famous walk on Skye, the Old Man of Storr. This pinnacle of rock is part of the Trotternish Ridge and takes around an hour and a half to complete. If you’re looking to sit and relax, join one of the many boat tours on offer around the island and enjoy an afternoon dolphin and seal watching. From the Isle of Skye, take the scenic A87 back down to Fort William.
The gateway to Ben Nevis and the Outdoor Capital of the UK, Fort William, is the ideal base for adventure lovers and has everything from hiking and climbing to skiing. From here you can visit the volcanic landscape of Glencoe, the famous Glenvinnan Viaduct as seen in the likes of Harry Potter. The Lochaber Geopark is a must-visit for its diverse natural landscapes. Spend a day exploring the mountains, beaches, lochs, waterfalls and glens of this stunning Scottish region.
You should have enough time in the Lakes to get a quick bit of walking in, or a chilled evening in one of the friendly Lake District towns, before making the short journey back to Leeds.
