Well, the quietest and nicest roads, in my opinion, are in Scotland and there so so much to do. My favourite camping cycle tours have been in Scotland despite the weather and the midges. The Western Isles, Orkney, Shetland, NC 500; I had a great tour of the eastern coastline after changing plans completely because of the weather. After cycling from Fort William to Portree, the weather on the West Coast was appalling, so I cycled to Inverness and followed the coastline around to Edinburgh before cycling through Jedburgh and Alston down to Manchester.
I also go overseas when I can, but there are times when a good tour of the UK is good for the soul. I am going to make a start on the British Cycling Quest next year and hopefully see, enjoy and go camping in some different parts of the UK I've not experienced before.
