Additionally, public transportation in the UK is pretty good. Even the smaller villages in Scotland have decent bus service. You can also look for a local train route. For example, many of the villages outside Edinburgh are covered by the Fife Circle train - lovely places like Markinch, Glenrothes, Thornton, and Aberdour.

There are not tons outside Dartmoor NP and North York Moors NP but that doesn't mean they don't exist. The real question is, where is he going and where are you searching for the clues? ie, the percentage listed on AQ or LBNA is extremely low.

Ilfracombe. The closest one is 30 plus miles away. He won't have the time to go find it.

Hmmm... Ilfracombe? There used to be quite a few on Exmoor, an area east of Ilfracombe and accessible by public transport. Though services in the autumn and winter won't be as good as in the height of the summer. These boxes used to be listed on the Dartmoor Bounders website but that has not been available for a while now.
