Scotland is a small country and travel is easy. There are direct air links with UK cities, with Europe and North America. There is also an internal air net work bringing the islands of the North and West within easy reach.
Scotland ‘s rail network not only includes excellent cross- border InterCity services but also a good internal network. Travelling Britain by rail has never been easier. Choose from the many Britrail Passes or other products that are on offer.All major towns are linked by rail and there are also links to the western seaboard at Mallaig and Kyle of Lochalsh (for ferry connections to Skye and the western isles) and to Inverness, Thurso and Wick for ferries to Orkney and Shetland.
Many visitors choose to see Scotland by road – distances are short and driving on the quiet roads of the Highlands is a new and different experience. In remoter areas, some roads are still single track, and passing place must be used. When vehicles approach from different directions, the car nearest to a passing place must stop in or opposite it. Please do not use passing places to park in!
