Travelling within Scotland - By Car...
The most popular and versatile way of visiting Scotland on a golf vacation is by car. International car hire companies require the driver to be over 23 years old and have held a full driving licence for at least one year.

Visitors bringing their own car from overseas require green card insurance and their vehicle registration documents.

It's also very important to remember that we drive on the LEFT of the road in the UK. We also make major use of roundabouts, where two or more roads meet and the rule here, in ALL situations, is to 'give way' or accede to the RIGHT.

Also make sure you observe the speed limits. These are monitored and enforced by unmarked police cars and cameras which are positioned on many roads.

Speed Limits - Maximum

Motorway 70 mph / 112 kph
Dual Carriageway 70 mph / 112 kph
Single Carriageway 60 mph / 96 kph
Built-up Areas
unless otherwise signposted
30 mph / 48 kph
