This year, more than ever, has seen an increase in people travelling around the UK. Understandable under the circumstances. It could be for a weekend break or your main summer holiday. To people who normally head to an airport and fly to a beach, this is a potentially new experience. While I too have headed to the coast while the sunshine is beating down, it isn’t my preferred time to go.
I am fortunate that I don’t have a family or a prescribed shutdown set of fixed dates I have to travel in and so I actively promote travelling out of season. My preference is quieter roads. And I prefer less people. Granted, it isn’t for all for myriad reasons. But if you ever have the opportunity to do it, I implore that you do. Take the North Coast 500 in Scotland.
