I'm currently creating a university project on QGIS. I need to highlight, on an OSM map of the UK, the historical route of the Great Northern Road. I have tried adding UK road network shp files but these are obviously far too broad and my attempts to filter the data to just show the roads I need have been unsuccessful.

I'm very new to the QGIS software.
