Feeling the excitement of driving on a single-track road.

Why? A. Because road trips are the best way to explore Scotland beyond the main attractions and going off the beaten track. B. Because road trips offer an endless state of heightened excitement. And C. Because many of our roads are single track roads and experiencing the thrill of driving in Scotland on a single-track road is certainly something that will leave you wanting to brag about it to your friends, so make sure to include at least one on your road trip – but drive safely!

If you were planning to discover the Cairngorms National Park, you can do so by exploring the 90 miles of the Snow Roads Scenic Route, where wild and beautiful landscapes and countless tales and hidden treasures await you. 

Enjoy breathtaking scenery at every turn as you traverse the highest public roads in Britain and spot a curious glimpse of snow on the hilltops almost all year round. Running through the eastern portion of this magnificent area, the landscape along this route has been carved by granite and ice. The route winds from the picturesque market town of Blairgowrie through to the Highland village of Grantown-on-Spey.
