Titillation in Tarmac


Without getting too Walt Whitman on you, around this time of year we get an uncontrollable urge to get out there and take to the road. The long days are perfect for dawn patrols on empty highways.

Here in the northern hemisphere you can take advantage of a good couple of hours of daylight before the traffic starts to clog up the nation’s arteries.

And if you’ve the energy and determination it’s always possible to find an empty stretch of tarmac to indulge in the simple joy of driving — from the Brecons and Snowdonia to the Lakes, the Highlands, the Peaks and the Pennines.

We’ve kept these pictured spots secret and unnamed.

Seek and ye shall find!
