North Coast 500 Route

For those looking for the ultimate Highlands experience, you can do no better. The route follows the shores of the north western tip of Scotland, passing through the spectacular North West Highlands. Along the way you’ll be treated to wild surf-pounded beaches, epic Atlantic views, remote villages and historical sights like Dunrobin Castle.

The Argyll Coast Route

Notorious for its rocky coast, salty sea air and unforgettable sunsets, drive the scenic route of Scotland’s west coast up to Fort William via Loch Lomond. Along the way you’ll experience a land of resplendent natural wonders, fjord-like inlets, rocky peaks and empty beaches. If all this primes your appetite you’re in luck, as the region is home to an amazing array of fresh seafood and produce.

Borders Historic Route

The green landscapes, stone-wall villages and historical sights of the Borders Historic Route make this region the perfect place for an authentic glimpse into Scotland’s rich heritage.

Budget in style with a cheap hire car in Scotland

Who says you have to finish where you set off? At many Budget car hire locations across Scotland, you can rent a car from one station and drop it at another. Find out more about one-way car hire.

Steer off the trodden track

Where to start? The famous 21-arched Glenfinnan viaduct near Fort William that featured in the Harry Potter films? Or how about the towering Grampian hills? There's always the Cairngorm massif and the jagged west coast stretching all the way from Argyll to Wester Ross.

Fancy an island escape? Catch a ferry from Ullapool in Ross-shire to the Outer Hebrides and into the windswept streets of Stornoway. During the jaw-widening crossing, soak up standing stones, lochs and white-sand beaches as you play spot the dolphin, whale, seal and shark if you're lucky (or brave) enough.
