    2 x 981 touring Scotland

    My first post so I hope its a good one!

    If anyone is interested in touring around Scotland or maybe driving the NC500 then this may be of interest. I've linked a couple of amateur videos documenting 2 x Boxsters (981 S) touring the west coast and mountain resorts.

    The cars covered circa 850 miles in 2 days so at the very least may help with future road trip planning or be useful if you are interested in buying a 981.

    Both cars are PDK and fitted with PSE hence all the pops and bangs.

    Grab a tea or coffee and watch, please like and subscribe if you enjoyed them.

    I absolutely love Scotland! I have traveled there a handful of times competing playing the bagpipes I cant wait to go back and would love to have my car with me! I loved the videos, reminded me of traveling around on the coach buses and visiting the distilleries.

    Re: 2 x 981 touring Scotland

    There are so many reasons to love Scotland! I play the pipes, own a kilt, and consider myself to be a Single Malt Scotch aficionado. Many, many years ago I drove my own BMW 528 around Scotland. Lately I have been traveling to Scotland with my son. My son and I drink the Scotch and we let someone else drive for us in a van. After several trips we have managed to visit distilleries in all the main Scotch regions and we have been to a master class.

    However, I can't think of anything more fun than what you are doing. Driving around in a Porsche over there would be the ultimate trip. Cool videos! Thanks for posting.
