Here at Priory Rentals, we understand that driving in the UK does not always scream excitement and luxury, however if you know where to drive and what routes to take it changes everything. Not every road in the UK is as boring and as mundane as the M6 in rush hour, so take a look at some of the more beautiful roads that the UK has to offer and that you are really going to want to drive on.
Stirling to Inverness (A9)
The Stirling to Inverness section of the A9 has many different beautiful features to it, which make it amazing to drive on. These range from old bridges, cliff roads and views of the rolling Scottish mountains. If you’re heading to just about anywhere in the Scottish Highlands or the Shetland Isles then trying to make this route part of your journey could make everything that little bit more worth your while. There is nothing better than knowing that the journey is the destination on your motorhome holiday.
Cheddar to Ashwick (B3135)
This is a short 30-minute drive taking you through Cheddar Gorge. Cheddar Gorge its self is an amazing valley that has the road carve around its sharp turns and through its amazing arches. It gives you a truly overwhelming feeling of ore and fear when you drive around its crooked trail. However, at the same time, being able to see small goats on the rocky outcrops and the streams cutting through the rocks and following you intertwining with the road seems to have a sort of beautiful aesthetic to it. If you want to be able to add a little beauty to your journey and are heading to the southwest areas of the UK such as Cornwall, it’s well worth taking a short detour and heading through Cheddar Gorge.
Capel Curig to Caernarfon (A4086)
If you are considering camping in Anglesey or Snowdonia this year and want to be able to get a real taste of Wales, then this road could be as close as you will ever get. The road its self winds around the Snowdonia Mountains and the plains to the northwest giving some breathtaking views to the passer by. So long as you do not mind taking in the mountain air, glancing onto the mountain crystal lakes and just all round loving the welsh countryside. You should be just fine.
Loch Lomond to Loch Ness (A82)
This is yet another beautiful Scottish road that you can take if you are heading to the highlands from the more western areas of the UK. The road its self starts just above Glasgow in the Trossachs national park before heading North to Fort William where it begins to send traffic north east past the lochs to Inverness. In the winter the road, its self looks like the scene from a medieval themed film with rocky cliffs, amazing lakes and snow-capped peaks dominate the landscape and natural beauty is simply given to you. Whilst the summer moths begin to emphasise its small picturesque villages and local culture Scottish culture of the hamlets that dot the route to the lochs.
Sedgwick to Bothel (A591)
Sedgwick to Bothel is a route that will take you directly through the Lake District cutting through Kendal at the heart. This in turn means that the road is perfect for those who love driving in fairly wet weather or simply want to be able to take in the various views that the landscape has on offer. The road its self is fairly unknown and most satnavs will take you the long way around to avoid it, as it is a single carriageway when you get past Kendal. Therefore, more often than not you will find it desolate and in turn even more tranquil and beautiful. Well worth a visit.
