Drivers in Scotland come up against a range of challenges. The tourism and festival hub of Edinburgh experiences the extremes of urban congestion; but drive out into the Highlands and you may find yourself squaring up against one of the herds of long-horned Highland cattle that roam freely in some areas. BookMyGarage can compare garages the length and breadth of Scotland, whether you’re negotiating Glasgow City Centre or gazing at the expanse of Loch Ness.
Edinburgh's tram works and the ongoing major upheaval of the Edinburgh Gateway project have caused disruption to traffic flows and routes around the City for a number of years, and will do so for some time yet. The A8 Corstorphine Road in Edinburgh is the second worst for congestion across the whole of the UK (outside of London), and the City bypass is another blackspot for traffic jams.
Scottish weather can adversely affect driving conditions, and motorists should be prepared for conditions to be fairly unpredictable. However, there are some patterns; April and May tend to be the driest months, and the West Coast is much wetter than the East. There can be snow on higher ground from the end of October onwards. Local authorities generally do a good job of clearing the main roads; if the weather is wintry, you’re best to stick to the main roads or delay your journey until it is safe to do so.
Scotland has the highest proportion of travel on single carriageways in the UK, and is the third safest region for travel on these roads. The motorway network is limited to travel connecting England and Scotland, and between the major cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling and Perth. The famously scenic road network supplements the major roads linking the cities with the A68 and M74, providing easy access between Scotland and England.
