Visit to Scotland
On the 28th April, myself and my partner drove all the way up to Scotland, on a journey of nearly 500 miles in one day. Leaving Cornwall at 7am and hitting the A30 the sun was rising beautifully and the mist was rising off the hills creating a beautiful morning for a drive. However once we hit the Bodmin area the sun had disappeared and the heavy rain started, making driving not so much fun. Once we had cleared the road works on the M4 M5 junction at Bristol the rain and also traffic were both clearing. Moving on up country the sun rejoined us and the driving once again became more pleasant. Once past the main traffic hotspots of Manchester and Liverpool we were onto the open roads up country.
Once arrived we went for a quick walk from the cottage up to the river Clyde, but with a biting freezing cold wind we soon headed back to the cottage and lit the open fire and snuggled in for the night, our first evening in beautiful Scotland.
