The most direct route is only a little over four and a half hours travel but it includes quite a few motorway miles. The BGT is OK on motorways and can keep up with the traffic easily but it's very boring so we decided to take a scenic route.
We left home at quarter to ten and headed for the A68 via Darlington and took that road to the Scottish border, stopping for a bite to eat at the Last Cafe in England.
We arrived at The Highland Gate Hotel, about quarter to four, after a leisurely drive of 194 miles. As this was the stating point for the Jacobite Jaunt there were other MGs there and more arriving all the time.
Sleep called so we settled down looking forward to a fun day on Saturday
