    i just routed it on mapquest and it sent you m25, A1 to scotchcorner. then across to Penrith and up M6 etc - that's the way we travel up to Scotland. Once you get past the M25 it's not a bad drive.

    we drive to near Elgin and do it in one go, usually 8 hours house to house.

    If you wanted to stop then what about Sheffield, Leeds, Harrogate is just off the A1, or York? that's one of my fave places but that's if you go up the A1. Depends what you want to stop off and do.
