By car in Scotland to the Isle of Skye
The west of Scotland means rugged coastlines broken up by bays and fjords, steep cliffs and bizarre rock formations under a blanket of fresh green vegetation.
Ancient castle ruins and prehistoric stone circles erected by the Celts and their ancestors create a spooky atmosphere. The Isle of Skye, situated in the west, unites many of these impressions.
For a round trip on the Isle of Skye or a tour in a hire car through Scotland, the great metropolises of Glasgow or Edinburgh are ideal starting points. After picking up your hire car from the car rental office of your choice you can explore Scotland on a network of well-maintained roads, for instance you can make your destination the Skye Bridge and the island it connects to the mainland.
Mull of Kintyre: coastal experiences in a hire car in Scotland
Paul McCartney was captivated by the delicate beauty of the Scottish west coast and inspired to write Mull of Kintyre, an anthem to the cradle of Scotland.
Here life is still authentic, nature is left to itself. Driving your hire car through Scotland you pass colourful meadows and dense forests on the way to the coast with its small romantic fishing villages.
By car you drive to the Kintyre peninsula via Glasgow and Inveraray, from there on the A 83, always along the water’s edge to the Mull of Kintyre. Well worth a visit is the lighthouse at the Cape of Kintyre, which is not particularly high, but its direct proximity to the 80-metre-high cliff is awesome.
