The Best Locations for a Post-Lockdown Road Trip

Road

The loss of complete freedom to travel didn’t stop us from planning ahead. This year brought unprecedented changes to our freedom to travel as we wish. However, we can now turn our attention to what we’ll do with the relaxation of lockdown. With that in mind, here are a few road trip ideas.

SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS
The Scottish Highlands are famous for their endless rolling hills and otherworldly mountainous landscapes, including Ben Nevis, Britain’s tallest peak. Renting a car at Glasgow airport for the drive to Fort William lets you take in the gorgeous Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

LAKE DISTRICT
Climb Scafell Pike along with Snowdon and Ben Nevis and you’ve
completed the Three Peaks Challenge – climbing the tallest spots in
Scotland, Wales and England. With hills, lake and forests, the Lake District is steeped in history and there’s something for everyone.

SNOWDONIA
It’s a similar story in Wales, with epic scenery along with some of the most exciting roads in the UK. Keen drivers should try to take in the roads around Bala. About an hour north, Anglesey offers more picturesque views and some fantastic ocean drives.
