Uley is warmer, but Haresfield is in the wrong county?

Westridge Woods
Uley is warmer than Kirtlington. Haresfield is the warmest so far. You all need to head northwest a bit.

I was thinking Ullapool, as I hadn't seen the flags.

Not Ullapool, and the flags are relevant.

The houses in the background appear to be more British than Scandinavian and the hills and vegetation are similar to some of the Orkney Islands.
Orkney was owned by Norway a few centuries ago.

Ullapool to Orkney is heading in the right direction.

Nothing wrong with second thoughts - but where, and why would a bus route have Norwegian flags?
