Driving through the Scottish Countryside

Traveling with Little's Chauffeur Drive

By

Driving through Scotland, where there are more sheep than people and the lochs and mountains form ever-changing, breathtaking views is one of life's pleasures.

If driving on the left side of the road seems a bit daunting and you'd prefer to sit back in comfort and take in the beauty of the passing scenery, consider reserving a car and driver from Little's Chauffeur Drive.

The company, which has been in business since 1966 and is a mobile member of Connoisseurs Scotland, provides professional drivers and can design a customized Scotland itinerary that leads to unforgettable places and experiences.

Focus on castles and lochs if you wish on your honeymoon or vacation... or perhaps romantic settings and gourmet cuisine at Michelin-starred restaurants. Perhaps history and gardens entrance you, or spending time at a spa and golf resort in the country that invented the game. And leave time to explore the cultural treasures of Edinburgh and Glasgow.

If you arrange airport pickup from Little's Chauffeur Drive, your driver will be waiting for you outside the baggage claim area. You'll recognize him because he'll be dressed in chauffeur's livery and holding a sign with your name on it.

The burgundy-colored fleet consists of current Jaguars, Volvos, Mercedes E and S classes, one circa-1933 Rolls-Royce and two late-model vehicles that bear the flying lady hood ornament.

Couples planning on visiting additional countries during their stay can take advantage of Little's international division, which secures cars and drivers for customers outside of Scotland.
