Make your stay in Scotland really special by hiring a beautiful classic sports car. For a few bawbees we can direct you towards a choice of eight, including a Triumph TR6, a Morgan two-seater, and a Jaguar Mk. 2, 3.4. What better way to explore the land that gave the world the speedometer and the first fatal automobile accident (Paisley, 1834)?
