Day 4. No need to go round the houses in Gretna. Go straight through Gretna then right under the A75 followed by left onto the B7076. Gretna to Carlisle you don't need to go via Rockclffe. An alternative is to stay on the road that runs parallel to the M6. Brings you into Carlisle on the A7. Admitte...

I'm not sure what your expectations are regarding full blown touring but I would have thought it a bit unrealistic to by able to be back to what you were doing before with no consequences (I speak having just had a knee replacement).

I can't see anything in those clips that would be formally pursuable. All vehicles passed quite cautiously.
