Drive along sweeping country roads and enjoy delicious fine dining during stays at five luxurious grand hotels

Few places are more magnificent than the Scottish countryside. Its scenery has inspired writers, artists and adventurers and is home to some of the finest country house hotels. On our six-day self-drive tour, you'll travel in a group of just 10 cars, enjoy meals in luxury hotels, and drive stunning roads skirting Loch Lomond and Loch Ness.

Beautiful scenery

The first stretch will take you from south Glasgow, past Loch Lomond, to Tyndrum, before taking a scenic route towards Glencoe. You'll arrive at the Isle of Eriska Hotel Spa, with views overlooking the dramatic Morvern mountains. Your second day takes you along the banks of Loch Linnhe, up to Loch Ness. And the following day, you'll see spectacular views from the Old Military Road.

Luxurious hotels

The trip kicks off with drinks at the 17th- century Crossbasket Castle Hotel, then a five-course dinner with wine in its Albert and Michel Roux Jr restaurant. You'll also spend nights at the boutique Rocpool Reserve Hotel in Inverness, Edwardian Greywalls Hotel, and Cromlix, owned by tennis star Andy Murray. There, you'll enjoy dinner in a private dining room.

Racing circuit

Your final day will be at Knockhill Racing Circuit near Edinburgh, with a series of parade laps and photo opportunities. You can choose to extend your time at Knockhill, enjoying the thrills of the Triple Track Experience - the chance to drive 10 laps in a Formula Race Car, 10 laps in a Legends Race Car and four coaching laps in a Honda Civic Type R.
