“We have just returned from Scotland and used a Service Station on the way down for a fill-up and lunch. Fuel was easy but expensive but the meal meant a 100 yard walk in pouring rain, a long wait to be served and indifferent food at a high price. All this to the noise of music, loud talk and laughter. I wish that we had known about your guide Near the Motorways which friends of ours showed us when we got home.”
