Before the A9 was reconstructed in the 1970’s and 80’s, the Great North Road wound it’s way from Perth to Inverness through towns and villages which are now by-passed. Much of the Old A9 followed the road originally built by General Wade to pacify the Highlands and although some of it is now a cycle track there remains numerous sections that can still be travelled by car. The Old A9 offers a quieter route with a sense of the past and the romance that goes with it.
As we travel North through towns and villages, beautiful scenery and stunning landscapes, the attractions increase. Drive at a more leisurely pace and give yourself time to see the sights. Discover remnants from the past. Visit ancient battle sites and stately castles. Travel one section or travel them all.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the new road, step back to a time less hurried. Join us on this journey. Let’s open our eyes to the past and maybe discover something of ourselves.
