    Garmin is giving me a route to Fyvie as A55, M56, M6, A74, M74, M8, M80, M9, A90 and A947.

    Can McBash regulars suggest a better route?

    Cheers Roy

    Thats more or less the direct way Roy although not necessarily the best!

    I think a few of those travelling will have some suggestions shortly !!

    Home to Larne. Ferry. Troon, Erskine Bridge, Crianlarich, Fortwilliam, Aviemore, Aberlour (?) and then towards Fyvie.

    In the name of Allah the most merciful, the most compassionate, let the feckin' rain stop.

    From the east, we use the road to jedburgh, from Newcastle, the Edinburgh, than east coast to aberdeen. All I can suggest, until kenny comes along is keep off the main roads once you hit Scotland, better scenery. Try setting the sat nav for shortest route rather than fastest. That might help.

    I think that's where the Fox comes in, that's their route from home,but believe
    t their plan for this year is to approach from the NW of Scotland instead!

    Just had another look at my route and changed it to run through Edinburgh.
    So its taking me on the A74 then A702. Or would I be better off going on the
    A7 through Hawick and Galashiels?

    :dunno:

    Normal route is scotch corner, jedburgh, Edinburgh, then head aberdeen. It depends on your time, but across country from Edinburgh is worth it.

    McMuckles, Friday we're dropping down from inverness side. Bonar bridge.

    Right I think I have my final route sorted
    M6 to A74
    Come off just north of Gretna and join the B7076 which runs parallel to the A74M.
    A702 across to Edinburgh, M90 up to Perth then join the A94 and head for Forfar.
    A90 up towards Aberdeen.

    464 miles with just over 8 hour running time.

    doing well to average 58mph including fuel stops.

    kinda wish i was going what with all this route planning now.

    The time is not including fuel stops.

    I get nearly as much enjoyment out of the route planning as the journey itself.
