Just to add to the frustration, HGV speedlimit is 40 on single carriageway.

Not being a HVG driver and not living in Scotland, I hadnt realised that the HGV speed limit of 50 mph on single carriageways (introduced in April 2015) only applies in England and Wales. Good to be aware when north of the border!

I hadnt noticed your location as Neuchatel, which I assume is in France, so just thought you were being pedantic about my incorrect ordering of the letters HGV as HVG. Glad its all sorted now and you can follow what we were wittering on about 😀

No worries, I actually live in Switzerland... don't tell to a swiss from the french part, that he's french you'll get in trouble  :038:, same as telling the german part swiss that they are german.

The speed  cameras are numerous but easy  to see , big yellow gantries  , most of them look at the front  of the vehicle but there  are 2 or so which look at the rear so be careful to look when you pass them , the a9 is not as boring as the m6 , I would use the a68 through jedburgh  to Edinburgh  then the a939 from near Perth passed my house to grantown  on spey it's much more interesting, the main thing is the lack of traffic, we moved from Yorkshire  to Scotland and the population  is about the same and the insurance  is about  half , have a good time
