The Isle of Skye has been nominated as a favourite destination by readers of Practical Classics car magazine.

The nomination process was open for six weeks and revealed the top 30 places classic car owners love to visit. 

Joining forces with insurance specialists Footman James, Practical Classics has now published the list of 30, which includes museums, castles, tourism hotspots and memorable mountain roads.

The next stage is an online vote - to create the definitive top ten. Once the top ten is finalised, the editorial team will then embark on an epic journey in their own classic cars to visit each of the 10 favourite places, inviting car enthusiasts to join them en-route.

Practical Classics Editor, Danny Hopkins, says: "It's a UK first: every year, hundreds of thousands of classic-car owners drive out to locations across the country so we thought it was about time we asked them where their favourites are. Now we know, it's time to put them to one definitive vote."

The project will culminate in a major magazine article, showcasing the top ten most-loved destinations. "It's a celebration of amazing places and a celebration of the great British Grand Day Out. We can't wait to hit the road with our readers to visit the top ten and decide which destination is the winner," added Danny. The winner will be revealed in spring 2018.
