Good route north from Hampshire to Scotland?
Can anyone recommend a good riding route from the south of England to Scotland? Let's say Basingstoke to Moffat for example.
Previously done a motorway slog to Moffat, stayed overnight, then fun starts from there north. But I don't really want to do that slog again there and back.
I don't mind a bit of motorways, but not much of an idea on a good and fast route up that avoids them. Snag is I would be leaving midday from work and hope to get to B&B in Moffat in the evening not too late as up early the next day for the Scottish roads!
Any ideas appreciated!
