SCOTLAND’S North Coast 500 (NC500) route has been voted the UK’s most epic road trip.

The study of 2000 Brits conducted by car brand Dacia uncovered the ultimate UK road trips, with over nine in ten (96%) stating that the UK has the world’s best drives. The longlist was created by a panel of top travel experts which was then put to a public vote.

While Scotland’s NC500 (68%) has been crowned the UK’s best drive by British motorists, the Coastal Way in Wales (50%) and The Jurassic Coast from Poole to Lyme Regis (40%) also added to the top five.

The car brand used the research to launch a new range of car air fresheners.

Luke Broad, Dacia UK’s brand director, said: “The UK is the ultimate playground for adventurous motorists. There’s nothing quite like the refreshing aroma of the rolling hills, coastal wind and, er, cheese, to get you in the road trip mindset. Our custom range of air fresheners bring the essence of Great Britain's favourite destinations right into your car. It’s Dacia’s take on the ‘new car smell’.”
