There are pick-up points on the M61, M6, M74 and A82 between Manchester and Fort William. Also from Manchester Piccadilly Station (approx. 10am) and Glasgow International airport (not Prestwick, approx. 4pm). If you are based in the South of the UK we recommend you fly to Glasgow International Airport and then catch the return train from Manchester. This saves you a lot of time in the vehicle. Drop off points are anywhere on the A55 and M56 between Snowdonia and Manchester Airport or Piccadilly Station. Alternative pick up and drop off points can be discussed upon request.
