When I put the route on Google maps, it told me the quickest route was to pretty much take the A697 or A1 the whole way.
Since we're staying on the west edge of Edinburgh and we're right off the M8, another option I considered was going M8 to M74 to A69. While longer, I thought this might be a good option since the motorway will travel faster and have less potential traffic problems.
Anyone travel this regularly and have a recommendation?
A697- can be bad however by far the quickest way
A1/A19- be sure to take tunnel fair of £1.20 each way (No change given)
A1231 follow for the SOL- and then find a good spot to park (by the queen alex bridge there an industrial park off the roundabout if you don't mind walking to for bout 5min to the ground that also goodplace for quick get away)
