Top five fuelGenie road trips to take this summer

Summer is the perfect time for a road trip, and we’ve found some of the best routes so that you can see the best places the UK has to offer. With plenty of filling stations dotted across the UK, these drives couldn’t be simpler.

Scotland’s North Coast 500

One of Scotland’s greatest icons is this 805km single track circular route. It covers the coast from Inverness and the Black Isle, along with Caithness, Sutherland and Wester Ross. With each bend and turn in the road, you’ll be presented with a number of villages and breath-taking views. Once the road reaches the beautiful Bealach na Bà it loops over the Applecross Peninsula and starts your drive home.

A trip around Yorkshire

With a mix of A- and B- roads to follow, Yorkshire is full of beautiful villages, waterfalls and rolling backdrops. There’s plenty of stops to make along the way. From the famous Dales to Wensleydale Creamery, you’ll be spoiled for choice from all the different places you can visit on your drive. Plus, the scenery is some of the best in Britain.

The wild Atlantic Way

This 2500km coastal drive has views on every turn. Showcasing six different regions you’ll never forget the sensational scenery. You can begin in the Northern Headlands and travel past The Surf Coast, The Bay Coast, The Cliff Coast, Southern Peninsulas and The Haven Coast; taking in the breath-taking views as you make your way down.

Black Mountain Pass

This route is one for people who feel comfortable behind the wheel. Famous for a road that twists, dips and climbs the Brecon Beacons National Park. The road is just over 20 miles long and reaches a height of 493m. The views are unrivalled and we’re sure you’ll want to take the trip again and again. Just keep an eye out for roaming animals.

Cheddar Gorge

Beginning on the B3135 on the edge of Cheddar, this 14 mile drive across the Somerset countryside is not one to miss. You’ll pass through Priddy before travelling along Plummer’s Loan. If you’re looking to break the route down, it can easily be split into three sections. Be warned though, the first section has many a twist and turn and needs a level of concentration when driving.

Don’t forget if you’re a fuelGenie fuel card holder you can stop at any of the number of Tesco, Sainsbury’s or Morrison’s filling sites across the country.
