Tour Scotland Video Winter Drive South A9 Road

Tour Scotland video of part of a Winter drive South on the A9 road. The A9 is a strategic link from the Highlands of Scotland south to the Central Belt of Scotland. Heavy snow showers as Storm Conor made its presence felt across the country. Storm Conor is the third named storm of the 2016 Winter season. The road's origins lie in the military roads building programme of the 18th century, further supplemented by the building of several bridges in later years. The A9 route was formally designated in 1923, and originally ran from Edinburgh to Inverness. The route was soon extended north from Inverness up to John O'Groats.
