Classic Car Break

The pleasure of driving a special car on the open roads of the highlands, staying in characterful inns.

Nothing beats the thrill of the open road and Scotland undoubtedly has some of the most scenic and spectacular, as well as the least congested. What better way to enjoy them than behind the wheel – or in the passenger seat – of a classic or sports car?

Your route will be specially chosen by us for you to enjoy the classic touring experience with plenty of flexibility for you to cover as many or as few miles as you wish, visiting places of interest on the way with lots of suggestions for lunch and other refreshment stops.

Routes will vary depending on the time of day you collect and return the car but typically you will start by heading north into Stirlingshire, Perthshire  and the Southern Highlands, or into Fife and maybe visiting St Andrews.

The next day you will then continue through the majestic valley of Glencoe to the west coast of Argyll, where you can enjoy some great Scottish seafood.

Your final day you will return to the east, through some more stunning highland glens, then back to Edinburgh by way of Loch Fyne & Loch Lomond.

Your holiday includes nights at two different classic Scottish country inns, where excellent food and hospitality is matched by comfortable surroundings.  Our accommodation is all hand-picked personally by McKinlay Kidd.
