Carlisle is a city in Cumbria, England.

Hitching out

North towards Glasgow, Scotland on M6 or A7

Scotland Road, later turning into Kingstown Road, leads to a junction with the M6 in the north of Carlisle.

There is a small filling station on Kingstown Road about 1km (0.6 miles) south of the junction. Much of the traffic seems to be local.

Hitchwiki maps suggest that you stand next to the slip road to the motorway. The place is narrow and not the safest place to stop. It might have worked better when the A689 right between Kingstown Road and the slip road wasn't built yet.
