GREATEST<br />

BRITISH DRIVES<br />

From a Sunday morning blast to a week-long adventure,<br />

the British Isles’ roads offer a lot more than you might<br />

think. Here’s our pick of the best to try in 2023<br />

Words NIGEL BOOTHMAN Photography VARIOUS<br />

We all long for great European<br />

driving destinations – Alpine<br />

passes, the French Riviera,<br />

the Mille Miglia route – but<br />

it’s easy to forget about our<br />

many great driving roads<br />

here on the British Isles.<br />

Whether you want a week-long holiday in<br />

wild, empty mountains or an afternoon<br />

blast to escape the urban sprawl, there’s<br />

far more to enjoy than you might think.<br />

Britain and Ireland are evenly blessed<br />

with great drives, as you’ll see from the<br />

highlights listed below for each region.<br />

In addition to drive-it-yourself route<br />

guidance, we’ve included some organised<br />

trips from expert tour operators. But<br />

for every route, we’ve given distances<br />

together with a guide to time taken –<br />

factoring-in stops for meals, coffee, or just<br />

a dazzling photo opportunity.<br />

Time to make plans for the year ahead...<br />

Secluded lanes<br />

are pure joy in<br />

a classic – and<br />

we’ve got loads<br />

Some of the<br />

world’s most scenic<br />

roads are in the<br />

Scottish Highlands<br />

[ <strong>50</strong> <strong>Greatest</strong> British Drives]<br />

SCOTLAND<br />

North Coast <strong>50</strong>0<br />

516 miles, three to four days<br />

The north coast of Scotland has gone from<br />

a secret joy to a widely promoted driving<br />

destination. As a result, the quantity of camper<br />

vans in summertime can dampen the spirits, so<br />

try an out-of-season adventure and benefit from<br />

the reduced hotel rates. Sacrifice something to<br />

the weather gods before you set off.<br />

Lewis & Harris – Hebridean adventure<br />

70 miles, Stornoway to south Harris & back,<br />

but allow days to explore<br />

Go further than Wester Ross for true escapism,<br />

to the Outer Hebrides. Wild and windswept<br />

most of the time, but surprisingly Caribbean in<br />

sunny weather, the Isles of Lewis and Harris are<br />

one landmass divided by a mountain range that<br />

offers one of the most spectacular and leastknown<br />

driving roads in the <strong>UK</strong>.<br />

Applecross and the Bealach na Ba<br />

420 miles, two days, Glasgow to<br />

Applecross and back<br />

A short day’s drive from Glasgow – past Loch<br />

Lomond, through Glencoe and onto the A87<br />

towards Skye, then right for Lochcarron to the<br />

A896 and the turn-off for the mighty Pass of<br />

the Cattle, or Bealach-na-Ba – a tortuous and<br />

vertiginous single-track road with awe-inspiring<br />

viewpoints in good weather. On the other<br />

side lies a night’s rest and an amazing seafood<br />

dinner at the Applecross Inn. Do it over again,<br />

backwards, on the next day. Or…<br />

Loch Ness loop and the Corkscrew<br />

<strong>50</strong> miles, two to three hours<br />

Leave Inverness south on the A82 and keep<br />

an eye out for monsters, before an aboutturn<br />

at Fort Augustus. The single-track B852<br />

winds prettily north to Inverfarigaig, where an<br />

anonymous side-turning leads to the tightest set<br />

of hairpins in the country – the Corkscrew. If you<br />

make it to the top, follow the road all the way<br />

past Loch Ashie back to Inverness.<br />

Isle of Skye<br />

<strong>50</strong> miles each for northern and southern<br />

loops from Portree, half a day<br />

Maybe not a Mecca for high-speed, flowing<br />

roads – though the route from Bracadale to<br />

Portree is challenging – but for views through<br />

the windscreen, a lap of Skye taking in sights like<br />

the Old Man of Storr and the Cuillin Ridge takes<br />

some beating. Avoid school holidays to dodge<br />

the swarms of rented motorhomes.<br />

Small ferries, small islands<br />

3<strong>50</strong> road miles, give it five or six days<br />

A car tour of the south-western Scottish islands<br />

offers empty roads and stunning scenery but also<br />

various journeys on tiny ferries – get a feel for<br />

holidays of 60 or 70 years ago. Start in Glasgow,<br />

head for Arran, the Isle of Gigha, then back up to<br />

Kennacraig for Jura, Islay, Colonsay and Mull.<br />

Who says you<br />

can’t Mexican<br />

wave in a car?<br />

Compete in an<br />

event or just<br />

enjoy the drive<br />

Enjoy a stop off<br />

at historic places<br />

along the way<br />

Southern Uplands Part One<br />

Round trip from Dumfries; 85 miles,<br />

three hours<br />

Southern Scotland is like the Highlands, but with<br />

smaller mountains and fewer tourists. The roads<br />

are just as good, though – and you’ll often have<br />

the place to yourself, so try an energetic zig-zag<br />

through the three passes over the Lowther Hills:<br />

the B740 Crawick Pass, the B797 Mennock Pass<br />

and the A702 Dalveen Pass.<br />

Southern Uplands Part Two<br />

Round trip from Moffat; 75 miles,<br />

two to three hours<br />

Starting in Moffat, climb the A701 to the Devil’s<br />

Beef Tub (a reputed slaughtering site for cattle<br />

thieves) and keep going to the right turn at<br />

Tweedsmuir for the vertiginous Talla-Linfoot<br />

A fine way to<br />

give the Alvis<br />

a good airing<br />

road, passing two reservoirs and emerging at St<br />

Mary’s Loch. Head back to Moffat on the A708 or<br />

extend the run to Selkirk, returning on the twisty<br />

B7009 and B709.<br />

Scenic Scotland, 17/5/23 to 26/5/23<br />

1200 miles, nine nights<br />

This tour takes in many of the exciting and<br />

challenging roads and locations in some of the<br />

Scottish runs mentioned elsewhere in these<br />

pages, along with much more besides. £2999 pp.<br />

See classictravelling.com<br />

NORTH OF ENGLAND<br />

Darlington to Edinburgh<br />

The A68; 137 miles, four hours<br />

Jump off the A1 at Barton Park Services towards<br />

the A68, which soon reaches the spectacular<br />

tops of Weardale, Wolsingham Moor and on to<br />

Corbridge, and then the Roman roller-coaster of<br />

Dere Street before the Cheviots and Carter Bar.<br />

The same road will take you all the way to the<br />

Edinburgh City Bypass.<br />

Kielder Forest Drive<br />

Kielder to Bamburgh; 83 miles, half a day<br />

How 20mph can be great. This loose-surfaced<br />

toll road links Kielder with the A68 at Byrness, a<br />

12-mile climb to 1<strong>50</strong>0ft with breathtaking views.<br />

It allows a loop past Kielder Water and down<br />

to Bellingham, then on north-east to Rothbury,<br />

Alnwick and the superb Northumbrian coast.<br />

Forest of Bowland<br />

Lancaster to Burnley; 37 miles, two hours<br />

This often-ignored Area of Natural Beauty can<br />

be approached from all sides, but make sure<br />

you take in the 1000ft pass over the Trough of<br />

Bowland, between Marshaw and Dunsop Bridge.<br />

Off the Slaidburn Road towards Clitheroe is the<br />

old Waddington Fell hill climb; then beyond the<br />

Ribble Valley, try the striking Pendle Road and<br />

Barley Lane over Pendle Hill.<br />

Lake District passes<br />

91 miles (without the Kirkstone),<br />

four to five hours<br />

For steep mountain motoring, these are<br />

England’s best. Wrynose and Hardknott are on<br />

the same road out of Little Langdale; then either<br />

turn back to Ambleside to tackle the Kirkstone<br />

pass on the way north to Ullswater or loop west<br />

through Egremont to the three northern passes<br />

– Whinlatter, Newlands Hause and the most<br />

impressive of the lot, the Honister. Just don’t try<br />

it on a busy Bank Holiday…<br />

Barnard Castle eye-test<br />

95 miles, three to four hours<br />

Try this spectacular loop of the deserted North<br />

Pennines. From Barnard Castle take the B6277,<br />

pausing to admire High Force, then turn right<br />

across to St John’s Chapel, and left to Nenthead<br />

and Alston. Follow the A686 all the way through<br />

Bearsbridge and take the B6305 to Hexham.<br />

Then it’s the B6306 to Blanchland, the Meadows<br />

Edge road to Stanhope and the B6278 back to<br />

Barnard Castle.<br />

Yorkshire Dales<br />

140 miles, all day (with time for a long lunch)<br />

An epic. Clockwise from Harrogate: A59 to<br />

Blubberhouses, turn right to Greenhow Hill, left<br />

onto the B6265, left on New Road to Barden,<br />

follow Barden Road into Skipton and out on the<br />

A65. Right at Gargrave to Malham, then past on<br />

Cove Road, left on Henside Road, right at the<br />

T-junction with Silverdale Road all the way to<br />

Halton Gill. Turn right down to the B6160, then<br />

north to Buckden. Left on Beggarman’s Road all<br />

the way into Hawes, then north out of Hawes<br />

Hit the north<br />

with a drive past<br />

Bamburgh Castle<br />

and over the Buttertubs pass. Right and down<br />

Swaledale to Reeth, then to Leyburn, Masham,<br />

Ripon and back to Harrogate.<br />

Peak District passes and dams<br />

<strong>50</strong> miles, two to three hours<br />

A loop with a diversion, starting in Glossop.<br />

Take the A624 to Chapel-en-le-Frith, then the<br />

Sheffield Road to Rushop Edge and the deep,<br />

steep-sided Winnats Pass, on to a turn north<br />

on the A6013 at Hope Valley. Then there’s<br />

the impressive Derwent Valley Dams road up<br />

the side of the water and back, before the<br />

magnificent A57 Snake Pass back to Glossop.<br />

MIDLANDS<br />

Three hill climbs in a day<br />

94 miles, three to four hours<br />

Head west from Prescott Hill in Gloucestershire<br />

to Tewkesbury, Ledbury and then Bromyard to<br />

Shelsley Walsh, the world’s oldest motor sport<br />

venue in continuous use. Then the roads get<br />

better still; Tenbury Wells, Ludlow and then into<br />

the Shropshire Hills at Craven Arms. Dodge the<br />

busier A49 and head north to Loton Park Hill<br />

Climb via Minsterley.<br />

Lincolnshire, from Fens to Wolds<br />

86 miles, half a day<br />

Starting in Stamford, you’re into table-flat<br />

Fenland scenery beyond Spalding. Up the A17<br />

and A52 to Hubbert’s Bridge, then north on<br />

the arrow-straight B1192 to the Bubble Car<br />

Museum or the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight<br />

at Coningsby. Horncastle is your gateway to<br />

the Wolds’ soft contours, with maybe a stop at<br />

Cadwell Park before a fish supper in Cleethorpes.<br />

Organised tours<br />

help you find<br />

the best routes<br />

Some organised<br />

tours feature access<br />

to private land<br />

Midland Auto Club tours<br />

Various, usually one day<br />

The Midland Auto Club organises touring events<br />

for their ‘Sports and <strong>Classic</strong>’ section for members<br />

only, but also the MAC <strong>Classic</strong> every two years,<br />

a major event with four starting points, which<br />

is open to non-members. The next one is to<br />

be held in 2024. See shesleywalsh.com for<br />

membership and other details.<br />

Welland Valley Wander, 12/8/23 (TBC)<br />

100 miles, one day<br />

Charity run for the Leicestershire and Rutland<br />

Hospice. ‘Interesting places, interesting route,<br />

interesting cars. A tour through Leicestershire,<br />

Rutland, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire<br />

finding hidden England.’ Loughborough Car Club.<br />

£TBC, wellandvalleywander.co.uk<br />

The East Midlands ‘Tick’<br />

52 miles, one and a half to two hours<br />

Resembling a backwards tick-mark traced on<br />

a map, this is a great summer evening blast<br />

starting in Bingham for Waltham on the Wolds,<br />

then south on the A607 to Melton Mowbray and<br />

out the far side on the B6047 all the way down to<br />

the A6. East on the A6 to the curvaceous B664,<br />

which you follow right the way into Uppingham.<br />

Bicester/Silverstone motor sport loop<br />

35 miles, one to two hours<br />

Start from Bicester Heritage with all its many<br />

historic motoring businesses, then up the<br />

A4421 past Tingewick to Silverstone, where the<br />

interactive museum is worth a look if there’s<br />

nothing on track. Back down the fast A43 past<br />

the Mercedes F1 headquarters at Brackley, then<br />

turn off on the B4100 back to Bicester.<br />

[ <strong>50</strong> <strong>Greatest</strong> British Drives]<br />

There are tremendous pubs: The Black Horse at<br />

Cranham, Fostons Ash and Laurie Lee’s old hangout,<br />

the Woolpack in Slad.<br />

Get out as soon<br />

as the good<br />

weather arrives<br />

Navigation<br />

rallies add<br />

challenge<br />

Dartmoor National Park<br />

81 miles, three to four hours<br />

Wild open country aplenty, and sweeping roads<br />

to enjoy. Start with the B3312 from Exeter to<br />

Moretonhampstead to Yelverton and then finish<br />

a triangle to Tavistock and either Princetown or<br />

Two Bridges, carrying on down the B3357 and<br />

B3387 to Dartmeet, Widecombe, Bovey Tracey<br />

and back to Exeter.<br />

Take a Triumph<br />

through a ford...<br />

or vice versa<br />

Cat & Fiddle loop<br />

28 miles, 1-1.5 hrs<br />

The eponymous pub at the top of the Cat &<br />

Fiddle pass has re-opened for refreshments<br />

following a refurb and the road that runs<br />

past it is fabulous if you avoid the traffic and<br />

speed cameras. From Macclesfield, take the<br />

A537 towards Buxton, then come back down<br />

the A54 (equally stunning) to Algreave. Finally,<br />

chill out along the woodland lanes through<br />

Wildboarclough back to the A537.<br />

WALES<br />

Evo Triangle<br />

110-mile round trip from Oswestry, half a day<br />

Reach this road-testers’ favourite via the<br />

enjoyable B4391, west of Welshpool or Oswestry.<br />

Keep going past the top of Bala, turn right at<br />

Fron-goch and then left onto the A5. The triangle<br />

starts at Cerrigydrudion; stay on the A5 to<br />

Pentrefoelas, right onto the A543 all the way up<br />

to Sportsman’s Arms, right again onto the B4<strong>50</strong>1<br />

and back to the A5.<br />

Brecon Beacons & Black Mountain Pass<br />

120 miles, four hours for all routes in a loop<br />

from Abergavenny<br />

There are lots of tempting routes across South<br />

Wales’s Brecon Beacons. We’d pick the B4560<br />

between Llngynidr and Garnlydan, the A470<br />

between Brecon and Merthyr and the A4067<br />

from Abercraf to Sennybridge. But they’re all<br />

understudies to the mighty A4069 Mountain<br />

Road, Brynamman to Llangadog.<br />

North Wales Expressway to Anglesey<br />

Chester to Holyhead; 85 miles, two hours<br />

(or much longer with stops)<br />

Can a dual carriageway be a great drive? If it<br />

has dazzling views of sandy bays and ancient<br />

castles, and it tunnels through mountainsides,<br />

yes. What’s more, it links Chester with Snowdonia<br />

and Anglesey. Once over the bridge, turn right<br />

for Beaumaris or follow the Expressway to<br />

Holyhead… and a ferry to Dublin?<br />

Portmeirion tour, 2/7/23 to 6/7/23<br />

Various day trips, four nights<br />

Staying in the magical Italianate village of<br />

Portmeirion, this event sets off to different sights<br />

car with likeminded<br />

people<br />

each day, with every trip involving some of the<br />

superb driving roads west Wales has to offer.<br />

Welsh Coast and Valleys <strong>50</strong>0,<br />

June & September ’23<br />

<strong>50</strong>0 miles, seven days<br />

NORTHERN IRELAND,<br />

EIRE, ISLE OF MAN<br />

Isle of Man TT course<br />

37.73 miles, at least 16 minutes 42 seconds<br />

Why should the bikers have all the fun? Away<br />

from TT week, the Isle of Man returns to normal<br />

and the Tourist Trophy race course reverts to<br />

being open public roads once more. Stretches<br />

outside the larger towns of Douglas, Kirkmichael<br />

and Ramsey are smooth, fast, scenic and<br />

enjoyable – none more so than the mountain<br />

section of the A18 over Snaefell.<br />

Causeway Coastal Route, Belfast-Derry<br />

130 miles not including inland loops, two days<br />

Like Scotland’s North Coast <strong>50</strong>0, this trip from<br />

Belfast to Londonderry has its own website and<br />

is much promoted. It features a succession of<br />

impressive sea views with the option to turn<br />

inland for various scenic loops, or stop at many<br />

Maybe catch<br />

some on-track<br />

action on the way<br />

attractions including the remarkable Giant’s<br />

Causeway. See causewaycoastalroute.com<br />

Mourne Coast Route<br />

102 miles, one day<br />

Head the other way out of Belfast for North<br />

Down, the Ards Peninsula, County Down’s coast<br />

and the mighty Mourne Mountains, via the little<br />

through Stroud and out for a loop through<br />

Painswick, Cranham, Sheepscombe and Slad.<br />

80 miles, three to four hours<br />

After the stunning trip through Cheddar Gorge,<br />

head west and pick up the A38 and then the A39<br />

at Bridgwater. You’ll skirt the Quantock Hills, but<br />

the really good bit starts at Porlock Hill, once a<br />

serious test for any car. The stretch from here<br />

to Paracombe is fast, technical and satisfying.<br />

Ilfracombe makes a pleasant overnight stop.<br />

Cornwall’s Atlantic Coast<br />

30 miles, one and a half to two hours<br />

Heading to west Cornwall? Get off the A30 at<br />

Redruth, heading up to Portreath. Take the coast<br />

road (B3301) to Gwythian, dodge Hayle on the<br />

Just, the B3306 is one of the most spectacular<br />

roads in the country, with clifftop ocean views<br />

and sinuous bends.<br />

New Forest, Winchester & Stockbridge<br />
