By my calculations, to reach the McFarthest Spot in the United Kingdom — the place most distant from Maccy D’s as the crow flies, minus outlying or disputed territories — one must sail polewards through heaving swells to the Shetland Islands. There, at the tip of the archipelago, uninhabited Out Stack punctuates the north Atlantic, 379 kilometers from the nearest McDonald’s at Peterhead, Scotland.
I’m having trouble deciphering the location furthest south. What is that one location out there, shining like a beacon of hope? (Update: It’s the location in Saint Helier, Jersey.)
