There really isn’t much that beats the thrill of a road trip through unexplored territory. There’s something invigorating about being in full control of where your travels can take you, not to mention the sights you can experience that would otherwise be impossible when traveling by other means.

Experience a trip to remember with these spectacular drives.

Skye is the limit

Scotland is usually chosen by travellers for its landscape and scenery. And one of the best ways to get a true feel for the country’s natural beauty is to hit the road. There are plenty of scenic routes in Scotland, so if you have several days to travel, then you’ll have your pick. But one of the most beautiful drives can be done in a day (counting in the obligatory cultural stops along the way). The Isle of Skye, connected to Scotland's northwest coast by bridge, is known for its rugged landscapes, picturesque fishing villages and medieval castles.

Come from Glasgow on the A82 which takes you up the western shores of Loch Lomond, a road which is narrow and windy in places, and end your journey in Edinburgh. Or start off from Edinburgh: the best way to come is through Stirling on the A85. Whether Edinburgh is your starting or end point, choose the Radisson Blu Hotel, Edinburgh City Centre for a stay on the historic Royal Mile in the heart of Edinburgh’s old town

King of the road

The Sheikh Zayed Road is the largest road in the UAE and runs parallel to the Persian Gulf coastline. It’s named after the Sheikh king who brought the different Emirates together to become the United Arab Emirates. It stretches from Al-Silah in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and ends in Ras al-Khaimah emirate. The Sheikh Zayed Road is home to most of Dubai's sparkling skyscrapers (so, if you’re used to winding roads and rolling hills, this will be something a bit different!). The highway also connects The Palm Jumeirah – the iconic palm tree shaped man-made island – and Dubai Marina.

The Radisson Blu Residence Dubai Marina, which also has convenient Tesla charging stations, offers sophisticated rooms and studios as well as beautiful self-catering apartments for longer stays. Oh and the view from your room is unbeatable, so from the road to your room, the spectacular sights are never ending!
