Whenever he can, Franchitti likes to get away to the small resort town of Oban, on the nation's west coast. Built around the distillery that was founded there in 1794, Oban is a classic example of the lush Scottish countryside. "I love sailing in that area," Franchitti tells 'Men's Journal.' "It's mountainous and hilly, very green. It's absolutely stunning."
