Scotty crew - route advice

Advice on routes north of the border up to Glasgow

will be travelling from Penrith via Alston and Brampton to Gretna and Dumfries BUT THEN WHAT

straight up to Glasgow to head north or

Balmaclellan and then onto Ayr then Glasgow

or

Newtown Stewart and Givan and then Glasgow

Or is there some other cunning route not obvious - dont want to head east as we want to travel down on the east side.

I think...

..from Obewan's previous thread they are heading to a Hotel in Balloch for the night, then heading north and west the following day. In which case crossing to Dunoon doesn't really make sense? Would be better flicking quickly round Glasgow on the M74/M8 and over the Erskine Bridge?......If it was me I would probably blat up the M74 motorway but maybe divert for some fun at Moffat and do the A701 past the Devil's Beeftub and then back across to the M74.

Otherwise if they have plenty of time, head west after Carlisle towards Stranraer and up the coast via Girvan, Ayr to Glasgow and over the Erskine Bridge. :winkie:

Keep your eyes peeled on the latter part of the M74 into glasgow tho. Potholed to shit, was up there last week.

Kam, I picked up the 'Glaswegian' to read in my hotel room.An article in there said compensation payout to motorists for damage caused by potholes was 3.5million last year and 1.6 million of it was in Glasgow :shock:

The fun starts at Moffat and continues all the way up the A701 to Broughton, 24 miles of fast sweeping bends.:winkie:.
