Map of Scotland

There are a number of ways the visitor might like to look at Scotland - tourist area, towns, rivers or roads. These sketch maps give you a basic idea as to finding your way round

With time and distance, it is about 280 miles from John O'Groats to the English border, or 120 miles from Edinburgh to Aberdeen. But remember, with very few exceptions, the roads the tourist will want to use are narrow and mountainous. The road will be perhaps 50% longer than the direct distance, and you can expect to average 30 miles per hour. Whatever you may think, you cannot "do Scotland in a day"
