We are a family of six and are travelling around Inverness and Durness by car as my husband's ancestral connections are around here. We think we have worked out that it is cheaper for us to keep the car and drive down to the south of England (900AU) than to hire a car in Inverness, fly and hire another car in Bristol to drive to Tintagel. We will be leaving Edinburgh on the 25th July later in the afternoon....say at 3pm. How far could we reasonably expect to travel south on the 25th. We have the next day to drive to Tintagel. We have two drivers, I am used to driving on the left and have driven on French motorways in summer (ok but did experience traffic) From forums I am getting the feeling that travel times can blow out due to traffic? Travel times and good stops would be good.
Suggestions really appreciated :)
