Scotland Driving and Directions

I will be going to Scotland in September by myself, and I will be doing a lot of driving. I am a person who loves to have directions to all of the sites and to hotels and everything. I'm ok with Maps, but if possible prefer the "turn left here, go straight here" type of directions. Is there a particular website that someone can recommend to be fairly accurate for driving directions or a really easy to ready map that shows fairly clearly where you are supposed to turn with the sites clearly defined? I know this is a lot to ask of a website or a map, but knew if something was out there, you guys would know about it! Thanks in advance for any help!!

Thanks for trying Sheila, it's much appreciated!! I found maps.yahoo.co.uk so hopefully this will provide most of what I need. Any other ideas are very welcome

www.theaa.com has a route planner which provides fairly clear plain-English directions, eg "Leave the A12 at junction 11, then at roundabout take the 2nd exit, then join the M25 motorway (signposted Dartford Crossing)"

Please ask Sheila to suggest itineraries or tell her where, generally, you want to go. She will give you the BEST information on Scotland.

Oh, did I mention that she lives there and has helped millions (well, maybe not millions) of people planning trips to Scotland? Since she has offered to help you, take it!!

Just back from a week of driving all over England (first time on the left!), and found both theaa.com and mappy.com to be very helpful. I noticed twice that Mappy had the better or more accurate route. I also relied on the Michelin book of maps. Good luck!
