The brilliant weather and high temperatures make for ideal conditions to indulge in a supercar hire and experience the beauty of the UK’s most exquisite routes this summer. Whether you just want a weekend getaway, or you are planning a longer holiday, here are the four most scenic routes to drive.
1.) Loch Lomond to Glencoe
If you love the rugged beauty of the Scottish Highlands, this is the route for you. Feast your eyes on the dark waters of Loch Lomond, before taking your supercar hire up through the mountains to enjoy the panoramic vistas across the countryside. The winding roads and unpredictable Scottish weather make it advisable to choose a car that can handle any terrain, such as Range Rover hire. The drive to Glencoe is not a long one and can be completed in a mere two hours, if you can resist the temptation to stop for photos of the breathtaking landscape along the way.
2.) Cheltenham to Stratford-upon-Avon
Cheltenham has a long history as a spa town, and it features many buildings of opulent architecture that once upon a time served as summer houses to nobility. Take your supercar hire on the B4632 up to Stockwell Common and enjoy the views of the Cotswolds. On clear days, you can almost make out Wales on the horizon. Stop in Winchcombe along the way to admire the picturesque stone houses, and then turn onto the B4077. This is an exhilarating drive, but take care in the hairpin turns. A Range Rover hire offers the grip and agility needed to navigate this route safely. In Mickleton you can stop and visit the gardens of Hidcote Manor, before ending your drive in Stratford-upon-Avon, the rumoured birthplace of William Shakespeare.
3.) Black Mountain Road
Black Mountain Road is one of the most breathtaking routes in Wales. Leading you and your Range Rover hire on a twisting and turning road through Brecon Beacons National Park, this drive will stay with you long after you have finished it. Dipping and climbing, the road will surprise you with spectacular views of the National Park beyond the hairpin turns along 20.1 mi (32.3 km). Don’t let the natural beauty distract you too much though, and stay alert for sheep crossing the road unexpectedly!
4.) Land’s End to St Ives
This beautiful route takes you along the coast and lets you glimpse the ocean beyond the thatched cottages of Sennen Cove. Stop your supercar hire along the way at Bottallack and explore the site of the former tin mines that pay testament to the region’s rich history. Follow the wildflower-lined road along the coast, and take a big breath of fresh seaside air when you arrive at the beaches at St Ives.
Whichever route you choose for your summer adventure, you are sure to enjoy the drive. With a picnic basket in the back of your Range Rover hire and the most beautiful landscapes of the UK stretched out in front of you, your biggest problem will be that you won’t ever want to stop driving!
