Scotland's northern coastline has garnered an enviable reputation as one of the world’s great touring routes, offering keen drivers challenging roads and breath-taking scenery, while Orkney – just a 90-minute ferry crossing away – is like another world, where ancient Neolithic history meets unique landscape and more terrific driving.
