Tour Scotland Video Winter Drive Main Road Scottish Highlands
Tour Scotland video of part of a Winter drive on a main road through the Highlands of Scotland. The A82 has an extensive history. It is derived in several places from the military roads constructed through the Highlands by General Wade and Major Caulfeild during the early to mid 18th century, along with later roads constructed by Thomas Telford in the early 19th. The modern route is based on that designed by Telford, but with a number of improvements primarily dating from the 1920s and '30s. These include a diversion across Rannoch Moor. The A82 is a popular route for tourists due to its extensive scenery, and it serves as the main artery for commercial and heavy goods traffic through the area.
