Jun 23, 2016 - Pottery Shopping & a night in a Castle

Another perfect drive through more lush green rolling hills of Scotland & England. Stopped for the night at the Shap Wells BnB in the Cumbria area of Central North Western England. Built in approx 1833 located in an area several miles off the main roads. 1 lane traffic for about 3 miles of nail biting drive.
