Getting ready for going to Scotland!

The route from Little Bytham to Killearn

Since it’s not all at all, till I set off to Scotland. I have been washing my car all set for the long 320 mile drive up to Killearn to spend Christmas and New Year with my family. Of course when it gets to Sunday, I bet it will look like I have not even washed my car. Oh well.

The map to the right, shows the 320 mile route I take from Little Bytham to Killearn. It’s not a bad route. Lucky since I first started to do this journey lots of the route has been upgraded. Even in just the last 2 or 3 years, they have added another 20 miles of motorway. Which does really speed up the journey time.

People often ask why I don’t get the train up. Well it just costs way to much. I also have to get a lift at each end to and from the train stations. Adding around 1 hour to start and end of the journey. Also if I take the train once up in Scotland I have no way to get around. Other than the bus. No way I am paying £10 return just to get to and from Glasgow.

I am up. I like going into Glasgow and lots of other places you just can’t get the bus to. Also I like to be to do what I want, when I want. Not have to wait hours for a bus to turn up!

    1. Well that!! Can’t go that wrong with that price. I take so much stuff with me, I would need my own train just to get everything up :). Normally I go into Glasgow at least 5 times. So on the bus that would cost me £50! No way I am paying that!

      1. I’m normally the same, tho this year my housemate is driving up the day after i get the train, so he’s driving all my presents up for me hehe

  1. I hope you have a safe journey up. I just hope that you don’t get the bad weather that’s expected up there later today!!

    1. I am driving up this Sunday. I don’t mind the wind. I can crop with that! It’s snow and ice I don’t like! Wind just means you have to slow down.

      1. Just been looking at the BBC Weather forecast for when you’re travelling on Sunday and all looks okay for your journey. Just be prepared for it to be a lot colder! 🙂

  2. Have a great break with a good drive to Killearn – & then make the most of your car to go where you want, when you want. Hope you enjoy a lovely visit to your family. If you have the time, let us know what you get up to.

    1. I have a list of places in my head I want to go to! Glasgow of course is on of them. Another is Loch Lomond. Want to get lots photos using my “new” camera. It’s never been to Scotland so far!
