When the sun sets, we are still not in Scotland, still on the M6 fighting the hills around the Lake District with roughly 100 miles to go to our first nightly stop in Scotland, near Glasgow. The M6 has proven to be one of the more beautiful motorways in this country thanks to the changing and occasionally stunning scenery.
The day started early in Birmingham city centre for us. First stop of the day was the MG Motor UK Sales Centre at Longbridge. Here we got a tour of the Engineering Office and the factory. We also had the chance to take the MG6 for a test-drive - which was duly taken. A visit to Tatton Park near Knutsford in Cheshire rounded the day for us before hitting the M6 to start the long journey up to Scotland.
