Apologies if this has been asked, I tried to do a search and couldn't find so please let me know if I can find elsewhere.
I will be driving with my husband and in-laws from the Cotswolds to Edinburgh on a Friday in early June. It will be all of our first time in Britain/Scotland. The route appears to take us on the M6 just by the Lake District. It is obviously a long drive (6.5 hours without stops), but since we're so close, we thought it might be nice to take a 45-minute detour just to have a scenic drive into the district. Is this really feasible, and if so, any suggestions on a route?
Thank you in advance!
