Even though I left home over 30 years ago, I still refer to the trip to Scotland as going home. It is about 435 miles if I go direct, but as I do the trip three or four times a year the direct route is getting very boring.
This trip I did the usual A2/M25/M1/M6/M74 but this time I cut across the hills of Southern Scotland to visit Leadhills and Wanlockhead. Located high in the hills the two villages were the home to lead miners. The mines are long closed and are now the home of several museums.
