A conservative estimate. There are some others that I have definitely passed through but don't recall ever stopping off at.

Bah! I'm very jealous of your Scottish exploits.

Admittedly, the trip to the Far North was when I was only 4 or 5 and we had a holiday in Aultbea. The most memorable things about the holiday were having breakfast by the Forth Road Bridge on the trip up (it was about 12 hours drive from Newcastle), that it rained almost every day (which the landlady claimed was "quite unusual"), and that 10p was quite enough for a tip (this was the 70s after all, when inflation was c.20%).

I do remember that Gruinard Bay was very beautiful. My parents were quite ignorant of the history of Gruinard Island (a.k.a. Anthrax Island).

Surfing around friends and friends-of-friends, I am surprised how un-visited Cumbria and Northumberland are. For the uninitiated, Cumbria boasts the Lake District and Northumberland shares with it Hadrian's Wall, and parts of the coast are spectacular (notwithstanding uitlander's reserve about the Alcan factory and the once proposed nuclear power station at Druridge Bay, which was either an SSSI or an AONB, can't remember which).

Re:

SSSI IIRC - and it remains one of my 'favoured' places in that neck of the woods, along with Alnwick, Rothbury and the Cragside end of the Natonal Park.
