If you are not used to (very) long drives, make sure you take plenty of breaks, and leave plenty of time - the roads get a lot slower (and a lot more dangerous) north of Glasgow / Edinburgh.


I can't match Martin P's 50k miles a year, but as a systems consultant I was often doing 35k + .

Not sure if the roads are more dangerous north of Glasgae - though I have seen BMWs with German and Italian markings racing each other on both sides of the road north of Loch Ness - but the constant meandering and variations in width and gradient make them hard work.

That's where the tiredness comes in.
