Coming from North down the A9 to take my sister to uni. When I do a routeplan it takes me South through Cupar, but then when heading back North it takes me up to Dundee.

Why? I would rather come back the same way if possible!

St. A's is not near the motorway. You go through Cupar to get to it if you are coming from the south off the A9.

I know, but is there a reason google maps tell me to go back through Dundee rather than back through Cupar?

You see ages ago I had a conversation with dh where I remember him saying to go through cuapr but come back dundee way cos it is easier. He never said why and I can't ask him now because he is working away!

To go from Dundee to the A9 at Perth is a bit easier as it's dual carriageway and the road through Fife can be a bit of a nightmare. There's no reason not to go that way if you wanted to though

Is it? For some reason i thought that way took me through dundee? Dual Carriageway sounds good, but does it get very busy?

And it what way can the fife road be a nightmare?

Sorry for the interrogation, but I'm only used to our quiet country roads up North!

can't make my mind up now!

Help me decide - I'm leaving at 8 in the morning!

I think I had better just stop being so wussy, make my mind up and do it grin

I've probably missed you but the road through Fife is single carriageway and there are a lot of tractors on it!

You don't need to go right through Dundee, you'd come off the bridge, turn right and go straight on along Riverside Drive, this takes you onto the A90 to Perth then the A9 from there smile

Thanks. I went the fife way there and back. Very used to single carriageway with lots of tractors grin

Was a very easy and pleasant drive smile
