Glasgow to Isle of Sky driving route named one of the Best

Car Hire Glasgow Airport consider the criticism of part of a scenic route to be unfair as it may have the effect of putting drivers off from taking it. They would suggest all of their car hire customers to make some time to go along the route.  

The Glasgow route to the Isle of Skye has been named one of the best driving routes in the world, with one major issue as the magazine which published the results suggested tourists should avoid Fort William.

This has angered many including local councillor Brian Murphy, who said “I think what Travel has said is very unfair and is typical of the ill-informed and stupid comments we get from time to time. It is badly wrong. The town has a lot to offer tourists and is a great place to visit. It is the outdoor capital of Britain and for good reason too.”

The route which covers 26 miles was listed in the top thirty along side the Cape Town to Cape Point route in South Africa and the Norway Atlantic Road drive from Molde to Kistiansund. The only other UK routes to make the list were the circular drive around Keswick in the Lake District and Wrexham to Beaumaris on Anglesey in Wales.

The negative feedback written about Fort William it is not the first time this has happened in the past, with another travel guide offering unhappy reports about the place. There are plans to give new life to the area to increase tourism and encourage investment.
