Safe Driving in Scotland and the Highlands
We often get asked about driving on the narrow Scottish Highland roads and also about single track roads with passing places. So we thought it would be useful to come up with a handy leaftlet that you can download to view on your journey or print off to have with you.
If you hire a motorhome from us we will discuss driving on single track roads in your handover before you take the van on your holiday. There is also a copy of this leaftlet inside your motorhome information booklet.
There are a few simple rules to follow when driving on narrow highland roads or single track roads, most of all its about being safe and courteous, always be aware of your surroundings and remember that you may well be on holiday soaking up the scenery and going at your own relaxed pace but there are local people that still need to go about their daily business, so always allow overtaking or pull in to let the traffic continue, you will have a much more enjoyable journey without another car on your bumper!
Safe travels and most of all enjoy your adventures and our beautiful land.

Highland Campervans were an extremely easy and efficient organisation to work with. Their website and booking process were very user friendly, the van we hired was of an excellent standard and very easy to drive. Everything we could possibly need for our tour of the Highlands was on board. Jo and the rest of the staff were super helpful and friendly with both great practical knowledge of the van and the area of Scotland that we planned to visit.
