Tour Scotland Video Drive A889 Road From Dalwhinnie To Laggan
Tour Scotland video of a drive on the A889 road from Dalwhinnie to Laggan, Scotland. The A889 is neither straight nor level, and in that respect is just like most of the other older roads through the Highlands. It goes up, down, left and right, always following the line of least resistance across the hillside. The A889 from Dalwhinnie to Laggan is one of the last remaining stretches of Wade's Military Roads which is still in use today as a primary route. The original road was part of Wade's route between Dalwhinnie and Fort Augustus, over the Corrieyairack Pass. The village of Laggan is in Badenoch, in the Highlands. It is notable as being the region in Badenoch where the Gaelic language survived the longest. It featured as the fictional village of Glenbogle in the BBC TV drama series Monarch of the Glen where many of the locals took part in playing the minor background roles. Laggan is an excellent base for touring by car and an ideal location for all outdoor activities, including fishing in the River Spey and surrounding lochs, Hill Walking and Mountaineering, Golf with several courses in the area, Pony Trekking, Mountain Biking and Ski-ing.
