4x4 Off Road Driving Scotland

Scotland has an abundance of spectacular scenery with great lochs, imposing mountains, rolling hills and vast farmlands. That makes it an ideal destination for off-road driving on your Private Tour of Scotland.

The unpredictable weather makes the activity that much more challenging and fun. This country is known for being diverse in its scenery and for having excellent outdoors options. We have put together a mini guide to best off-road experiences.

We will tailor your day to match your courageous spirit. Be adventurous on your Private driver-guided Tour of Scotland.

Go OFF-ROAD in the Scottish countryside

The TOP-FIVE locations for off-road driving in Scotland;

1. Dunkeld lies in Scottish Big Tree Country, a heavily wooded area and a national scenic area known for its extraordinary landscape. A must-visit for your 4x4 off-road driving experience. You will have the choice of one hour taster or half or full-day adventures in a fully loaded Land Rover. Quad Treks are also available. Spot the local wildlife, climb steep hills and take the Land Rover for a little swim! It is all part of the fun.

Where to Stay
Just 20 minutes from the 4X4 site is Fonab Castle Hotel and Spa, in the lovely town of Pitlochry. Fonab Castle has the interesting quirks of a castle, but none of the disadvantages. Enjoy Loch-side bars and two restaurants. 

2. Perthshire is part of the Highlands with mainly mountainous terrain, diversified with beautiful lochs and valleys, the perfect landscape for 4x4 off-road driving. This experience is with OLD SCHOOL Land Rovers, so you test your skills to the limit in the Perthshire Hills. Ouad bikes are also available.

Where to Stay
The magnificent resort of Gleneagles Hotel, with its golf courses and a huge list of country pursuits, is the king of hotels in Scotland. Our suggested and customisable Whisky, Golf and Culture Tour includes the Gleneagles Resort.

3. Loch Lomond is tucked away in the heart of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, an ideal place for this activity with the rolling countryside and imposing hills all around you. Our friends at 4x4 Adventures offer full-day off-road guided tours in almost any weather. You take the wheel, use VIP “tracks” off the beaten path, and stop for a civilised lunch before tackling the most extreme off-roading. Everything can be tailored for the adventurer.

Where to Stay
The perfect place to stay on Loch Lomond is Cameron House Hotel, now totally refurbished into a modern classic property. Enjoy five eating venues, three bars and a full range of activities.

4. The Scottish Highlands provide the opportunity to drive various tracks from high up in the hills to the Caledonian Forest of the Cairngorms National Park. See its diverse wildlife and ancient trees. This is a 4x4 quad bike experience taking into seventy thousand acres of wilderness, passing waterfalls, lochs and the odd castle.

Where to Stay
Centrally located, Fonab Castle Hotel is ideal for the 4x4 driving sessions in the Highlands and a short journey with your driver guide to the Whisky Trail. Tackle the challenge of driving up a mountain in the morning and having our driver guide take you whisky tasting in the afternoon. Our Tour Designers will book you into the spa in the early evening – the perfect day.

5. Butterstone Loch is an area filled with different types of terrain; here, you will have to tackle steep slopes, descents and streams whilst dealing with unpredictable Scottish weather. An opportunity to test the latest Land Rovers and witness what technology can do, such as driving without the use of foot peddles over rocky terrain.

Where to Stay
Fonab Castle is again a great option. Alternatively, a little further away is Cromlix House Hotel. A delightful Victorian property within 34 acres of woods and manicured gardens. More like a restaurant with rooms, 15 to be exact. The Chez Roux Restaurant is a little piece of heaven. Enjoy lunch while watching the regular Bird of Prey experiences.

There is always the Luxury Guesthouse and B&B option, which adds a nice bit of variety to an itinerary.
