Aberdeenshire, Scotland is the most secluded staycations in UK

Travel experts from the marketplace have revealed that Aberdeenshire in Scotland is the most secluded British destination followed by the Highlands and Suffolk.

According to travel experts from Snaptrip.com, Aberdeenshire, located in North East Scotland, is a vast area that only has a population of 261,470 with many of those located in the city of Aberdeen itself.

The top five most remote areas in the UK are Strathdon, Aberdeenshire; Invergarry, the Highlands; Sibton, Suffolk; Tavistock, West Devon; East Meon, East Hampshire.

The travel experts considered factors such as population per square mile, urban development, accessibility and distance between settlements in order to determine the most remote destinations in the UK. All locations in the top ten benefit from few main roads or motorways, limited commercial developments such as shopping centres and minimal housing. 

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement, it was discovered that Cornwall and Devon are the most popular destinations this summer. 

The most popular month for UK travel in 2020 is July, with more than 50% of bookings made for next month showing just how eager the British public is to get away. 40% of bookings were made by couples or families, while 58% of bookings were of parties of 3 or more adults, indicating holidaymakers are looking to use a staycation to reunite with family and friends after more than three months apart. 

Across all of its marketplaces it reported an increase of 69% in traffic and 172% in bookings compared with this time last year, in addition to a 400% increase in revenue YoY. In anticipation of the PM’s announcement, traffic increased 54% and bookings 119%, while traffic increased by up to 381% at peak hours across the group after Boris Johnson made his announcement.
