The Independent newspaper (UK) recently interviewed Jay about his interest in driving and the complete interview/article is available online. He talks about the places he best loves to drive and his favourite place for road driving - Scotland...
"You can't beat Scotland for road journeys. I own a crofter's cottage south of Ullapool, and I love some of those stretches on the west coast, particularly the route from Achnasheen to Kinlochewe, which is absolutely stunning. It has double switchbacks, dodgy cambers, sheep: it's all there. The journey up there takes me 12 hours."
"But if I had to pin my all-time favourite journey down to one, I think it would be from Fort William to Mallaig. The first time I did it was back in 1998. I went up to Fort William and stayed at Inverlochy Castle because I felt like pampering myself. It was a great place to stay; I can really recommend the breakfast - a piping hot fry-up with great Scottish bacon."
In addition to talking about memorable road journeys, Jay also reveals his favourite three cars, and offers tips for fellow drivers, in which he reveals his favourite sandwich!
"My favourite is made with really old Cheddar, chives, lettuce, thick slices of cucumber, brown cob, white pepper and Hellmann's mayonnaise."
