Famous for its unspoiled natural beauty, Northumberland is considered one of the most picturesque areas of countryside in the entire UK. The region is best explored by car, on the county's well-maintained and very quiet roads. Visitors to the area often report driving distances of over 100 km (70 mi) and meeting only a dozen other cars. In a country so modernized and populous, it's hard to imagine such an undiscovered area of wilderness and tranquility. As you drive over the rugged landscape, only a few houses and some secluded villages dot the horizon. With a mere hour separating it from the Scottish capital, it has a distinctly Scottish feel.
