Correct. In order to go into the Highlands you need a 4x4 (full-size for most routes) as well as experience driving rough mountain tracks and crossing glacial rivers with a vehicle.

There is a summer bus system in place to take you to hiking destinations in the Highlands, though, or you can book superjeep tours with a driver.

"Ring Road" is the popular name of our National Road #1.
