As flights are a lot cheaper from London to Aberdeen than from London to Inverness (as well as they leave for Heathrow and is a more regular service so I can pick the times I want to fly) I am planning to fly into Aberdeen and then hire a car to drive to Nairn.
My question is, how long is the drive ? It appears to be about 70 miles on the map, but I assume the road is not the M2.
Is it a scenic drive, as I have never been to Scotland before and would like to see a bit of the countryside ?
Lastly, is there like peak hour traffic issues around Aberdeen airport ? I assume Nairn does not havedpeak hour issues with traffic.
