Saxa Vord Classic Rally

RALLYING TO THE VERY TOP OF THE UK

Limited to just 10 vintage or classic cars, this 11-day driving adventure traversing the west coast of Scotland, across Orkney and the Shetland Isles to the UK’s most extreme northerly point, will take you through breathtaking scenery as you drive Scotland’s most stunning roads. A country full of fascinating history, unique culture and warm hospitality awaits you as you make your way ever further north.

The Saxa Vord rally is a driving enthusiasts delight. In just one continuous northerly adventure, you’ll experience every one of the top 6 driving roads in Scotland, also considered to be some of the very best in the world.
