Tour Scotland Video Drive On Road To Pass of Drumochter Highland

Tour Scotland video of part of a drive on the A9 road South from Dalwhinnie to the Pass of Drumochter in the Highlands of Scotland. This is the main mountain pass between the northern and southern central Scottish Highlands. It is the high point on the A9, at 1,508 feet, and, in winter can be subject to severe weather conditions. The A9 road passes through here, as does the Highland Main Line, the railway between Inverness and the south of Scotland. The Sustrans National Cycle Route 7 between Glasgow and Inverness also runs through the pass. The route through the pass has been used since prehistoric times. A military road built between 1728 and 1730 by General Wade came through here. The summit of the pass marks the boundary between Perthshire and the Highland Council area.
