driving between hexham and edinburgh

I'll be driving from Hexham to Edinburgh, hoping to arrive late afternoon-ish but I can set off any time in the morning. I hear it's a pretty drive. How long do you think it'll take and can anyone recommend somewhere nice for lunch or some sights to see on the way?

I would knock it off in 2 hours going straight up the A68 - but then I know where the "dodgy" bits are.

I'd allow 3 hours but if you find someone trying to get past it's probably me so let me past.

Unfortunately there aren't many places to stop that are sufficiently far from Hexham but aren't close to Edinburgh. The only place I can think of is at the border viewpoint but it's only a van offering bacon butties and the like
