As some of the roads leading to holiday cottages and other accommodation may be on single track roads you are advised to plan for slightly longer journeys than you would normally consider for the distances involved.

Most roads in the Highlands are unfenced and sheep, cattle and wild deer can often be seen near the roadside, or on the road so please take your time when driving and enjoy the beautiful scenery along your journey, arrive safely and enjoy your holiday in the Highlands of Scotland.
